    Description

    1933 Sport Kings Babe Ruth #2 SGC 84 NM 7. With a name like "Sport Kings" it would have been laughable had not baseball legend Babe Ruth been included. He is considered by many to be the king of baseball both for his accomplishments on the baseball diamond but even more importantly for the unrivaled impact he had on a generation of children. To them, he was not merely a baseball player, he was their inspiration. In their eyes, he was a larger version of themselves. The great Bambino stands head and shoulders over his contemporary Titans of sport, like Ty Cobb, Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, Eddie Shore, etc. The "Sultan of Swat" was at the height of his popularity when the issue was released in 1933 and this beauty doesn't seem to have aged or have been handled at all in the last 82 years. This absolutely stunning example is so new and obviously uncirculated condition (except for centering) it is the "Black Swamp" equivalent of a Sport Kings card. You may find another with a higher technical grade but not one that looks like it came out of the pack - yesterday. Graded SGC 84 NM 7.
