    Description

    1933 C.A. Briggs Chocolate Babe Ruth (Baseball) #24 PSA VG 3. It had been close to 25 years since C. A. Briggs Company of Cambridge, MA issued trading cards. While their '09 effort was dedicated to baseball players, this 24-card set featured different sports, it is card #24 dedicated to Baseball that is the prized find. If the illustration, a close likeness to Babe Ruth doesn't convince you, he is mentioned by name on the reverse as well as details of his 1933 salary. Graded PSA VG 3, this scarce entry is one of only two rated by PSA, the other a qualified 1.5 example. Precise centering, strong colors and corner quality combine for a very nice looking card, graded for the small spot of surface loss on the back.
