    Description

    1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 Beckett EX 5. 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 714 round trippers to the 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. This card is nicely centered and displays a bold portrait of Ruth leaving the modest corner wear to account for the grade. Subgrades: Centering 8; Corners 4.5; Edges 6; Surface 7.5.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
