    1932 Abdulla Tobacco Babe Ruth #196 SGC 40 VG 3. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, one of only two examples at its tier with four graded higher. Babe Ruth was an international celebrity who was a natural addition to card promotions outside the USA. Issued in Germany, this scarce Abdulla Rekord from 1932 depicts a slightly reclining Ruth using his famed bat for support. "Babe Ruth, Amerika" is card #196 from the series titled "National and International Sport Records". The grade reflects wear and slight layering limited to the upper-right corner; otherwise the card has a NM appearance. A rare and fragile Ruth collectible.
