    Description

    1938 African Tobacco Babe Ruth (Small) #34 PSA NM 7. The World of Sport was a 100-card promotion from South Africa featuring a wide variety of sports-related subjects including this rare entry of American baseball legend Babe Ruth. This well-preserved card that shows hardly any signs of handling is the large variety. Issued some years after his retirement, the card boldly and accurately describes the Sultan of Swat as "The most famous Base Ball player in the World and the idol of the American public." A strong copy deserving of the PSA assessment. Graded PSA NM 7. This is the only card graded NM by PSA with one - a lone 7.5 - rated higher.
