    Description

    1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 SGC 60 EX 5. The 1948/49 Leaf series came at a pivotal era that showcased a selection of both first and lasts. The set features the earliest cards of HoFers Jackie Robinson and Satchell Paige, card #1 honors Joe DiMaggio who was in the twilight of his illustrious career. Card #3 served as a memorial to baseball legend Babe Ruth, honoring the baseball titan who had passed away in August of 1948. It certainly is no coincidence that Leaf Gum chose the same number Ruth wore on his uniform. Today, it is one of the most sought-after cards from this landmark edition. Graded SGC 60 EX 5. The offered example displays rich colors, nice centering, and quality corners.
