    1926 Sports Co. of America Champions Babe Ruth PSA Mint 9 - Pop One With Ad Back. This series was all but unknown until the 1980's. We now know that it was a joint venture between Sports Co. of America and Spalding Sporting Goods. The massive edition of over 175 known athletes are pulled from a very wide range of sporting endeavors. There are currently almost 50 different baseball players known. The cards first appeared in 1926 with a copyright date to confirm and so far only Babe Ruth can be found with a 1927 copyright date. Another rare back variant is known like what is seen on this card. There are close tom fifty Ruth cards with the standard back, there are currently only eight recorded with this back. The copy entices reader to send five pictures and 50-cents for a special Blue & Gold album to house the cards. That 50-cents was a lot of money at that time and represented a small pile of cards and gum. This could explain why the album is so extremely rare. Graded PSA Mint 9, this is the highest graded example of this challenging variant.
