    1920's W-Uncatalogued Strip Babe Ruth (5 Diamonds) SGC VG 3. Still one of the hobby's mysteries is this obscure strip card of unknown origin featuring Yankees legend Babe Ruth. The exact year of circulation isn't confirmed, but other playing card format promotions appeared as early as 1926. The cartoon portrait of Ruth is inside a diamond shape and is the 5-Diamonds as one would find in a deck of playing cards. This could be from the historic '27 season. A must-have addition for every Ruth collection. This is the highest graded example to date from a total pop of just four. Graded SGC VG 3.
