    Description

    1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Graded 88 NM/MT 8 by SGC, one of nine Leaf Ruth cards graded at that level by SGC with just four copies graded higher. This card number 3, identified by the same numeral Ruth wore on his uniform, is a sought-after collectable. Issued by Leaf Gum, Inc., and copyrighted "1949," the item honored the recently deceased baseball giant. The offered example is notably appealing, and arguably eligible for an even more favorable grade. This scarce Ruth card delivers incredibly sharp color resolution and a near-total absence of corner wear. Centering is very favorably aligned. Toning that characterizes 1940's Leaf products is barely evident on this piece. The reverse is clean and free of staining or excess print. A visually superior specimen in every respect. Thoroughly pleasing Near Mint to Mint condition.
