    Description

    1934 R309-1 Goudey Premiums Babe Ruth. Consisting of just four unnumbered cards, this set of black-and-white photos was printed on heavy cardboard and issued as a premium by the Goudey Gum Company in 1934. The cards measure 5-1/2" x 8.75" and are accented with a gold, picture-frame border and an easel on the back. Offered is the most pursued of the four premiums - babe Ruth! This rarely seen easel-backed "card" presents an image of Ruthian proportions. Mild surface wear and an unobtrusive surface wrinkle marginally affects an otherwise clean central image. Creasing and edge wear at the edges and corners, soiling and two segments of paper tape on the reverse results in a technical GD-VG rating. This is a scarce item not found in most Ruth collections.
