    Description

    1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 40 VG 3. Babe Ruth's exploits are documented on the back of this 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 against Brooklyn) in 1916 leaves little doubt as to who is the greatest ballplayer of his time. Offered is his 1948/49 Leaf card #3 (of course) with a warm red background. Graded SGC 40 VG 3 with modest corner tip wear, creasing on the left side of the card and nice centering. Very attractive card for the grade.
