Description1932 U.S. Caramel Babe Ruth #32 BVG VG 3. We would like to say it was the success of this series that inspired Goudey to break into the card market in 1933 but they are so scarce today we would have to wonder just how successful they were. Babe Ruth was the king of gum cards in early 1930's so it is with a ting of irony that the twilight of the caramel age would end with the "Bambino" serving as the final salvo of the closing era. Dating from the same year as his famous "Called Shot" in the '32 World Series, this card would have been well-loved. Graded BVG VG 3. A great chance to acquire a scarcer Ruth card. Card exhibits solid centering with modest corner tip wear and creasing.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
