    Description

    1939 African Tobacco Babe Ruth -Large #34 PSA EX-MT 6. 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 EX-MT 6, this card is one of three in EX-MT, there are none graded higher.
