    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 60 EX 5. Babe Ruth's baseball exploits are documented on the back of this post-career card issued after his passing. From his legendary 714 round trippers, including 15 in the World Series, to his longest World Series start (14 innings in 2-1 victory over Brooklyn) in 1916 with the Red Sox. There is little doubt who was the greatest ballplayer of his time. This example of his 1948 Leaf card #3 (of course) is offers blemish-free surfaces, a commanding portrait surrounded by a warm red background and a very nicely centered portrait. Graded SGC 60 EX 5.
