    Description

    1948/49 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. A number of Babe Ruth's exploits are documented on the back of this post-career card issued the same year as his passing. From his legendary 714 round trippers including 15 in World Series play or his longest World Series start (14 innings in 2-1 victory over Brooklyn) in 1916 with the Red Sox; little doubt is left as to the greatest ballplayer of his time after reading it. Offered is his 1949 Leaf card #3 (of course) with a rich magenta background. By all accounts this is a solid excellent or excellent/mint card where the vivid and nicely registered portrait of Ruth rests horizontally to the right generating the SGC 50 VG/EX 4 assessment.
