    Description

    1932 U.S. Caramel Babe Ruth #32 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 - Pop One, Two Higher. Other than a 1916 rookie few dates mean more to Ruth enthusiasts than 1932, the year of the famous "Called Shot" and the fact that few Ruth card collectibles bear this circulation date. With little else to compare, the US Caramel series would have been well-loved at the time, and hence bearing the signs of handling by young hands affording no thought to future monetary value. Lastly, the Babe finds himself the final card in this issue of thirty-two, leaving him in real danger of the excess wear generally plaguing the first and last cards in a set.

    Graded SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. This card is the lone entry to earn the NM+ assessment with two others grading higher! With a total SGC population of less than 60 examples, the existence of one so fine challenges the laws of probability. The only hints of the passing of eight+ decades lie in... well, there really aren't any. The red field is a blazer. The condition report wouldn't be complete without the mention of the absence of any printing imperfections and a very nicely centered portrait. The reverse is as vibrant and free of imperfections as is the obverse. A tremendous addition to any vintage baseball card of Babe Ruth specialty collection.
