    Description

    1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. 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 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 warm red background. Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5 with a nicely centered portrait.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
