    Description

    1939 African Tobacco Babe Ruth #34 SGC 84 NM 7. Graded SGC 84 NM 7, this card is one of a pair at the NM level with only one grading higher. 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 sign of handling is the small (2-3/16" x 3-1/8") 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 SGC assessment.
