    Description

    1931 W517 Babe Ruth #4 SGC Authentic. The 54-card W517 set is an issue of 3" x 4" cards generally found in a sepia color, though other colors are known. Babe Ruth is featured on two of the cards. His "Pitching" portrait (card #4) is presented here, a full-figure portrait of the game's greatest figure assuring that ranking. The hand-cut nature of strip cards allows only an "Authentic" rating but in this instance the surrounding white border has been removed leaving the central image intact, assessed SGC Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
