    Description

    1930's D146 Doughnut Co. of America "Thrilling Moments..." Babe Ruth SGC 10 Poor 1. "Thrilling Moments in the Lives of Famous Americans" is a 72-card promotion which appeared on the sides of boxes of doughnuts. There were four different boxes that featured 18 cards - six cards on each side and a bottom panel with copy/advertising. Not just a sports issue, other subjects found are Abraham Lincoln, Betsy Ross, the Wright Brothers and Davy Crockett just to name a few. Naturally, the key sports subject in the series is Babe Ruth "Beloved Baseball Idol of all Boys. This nicely cut example has been graded SGC 10 Poor 1 for the areas of surface loss, likely removed from the special album designed to house the cards. A must have for babe Ruth collectors.
