    Description

    1921 American Caramel Co. Babe Ruth E121 SGC 40 VG 3. We offer one of Babe Ruth's earlier baseball cards after his trade to the NY Yankees. So early, that the company did not even seek to use a likeness of him in a Yankee uniform. Additionally, this card as opposed to the other we have offered in the same auction is a variation and has the quotes around "Babe." This illustration captures The Babe as a pitcher for his previous team, the Boston Red Sox. Forget the grade here, as the image at first glance is quite receptive. There are usual round corners and wear that is normal for an 80+ year old card. This is the fourth highest graded card from a total submission of nine in the SGC population report.

    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.
