    Description

    1921 Schapira Bros. Babe Ruth (Portrait W/ Arrows) SGC 20 Fair 1.5.
    Schapira Bros. Inc. of New York had an exclusive agreement with Babe Ruth for a special promotion that allowed kids to acquire the ultimate prize to any youngster and most dads - An Autographed Babe Ruth Baseball! All that was needed to do was to "Send 250 Of These Pictures To Schapira Bros. Inc." This panel served as one of the facing panels of the box of Schapira candy. Even at a penny a box, that $2.50 was a monumental sum for most kids in the '20s. Offered is a nicely cut panel with key lines showing on all four sides. The 1-3/4 x 2-1/2" x 5/8" hand-cut card displays nicely with running from left to right on the surface and a bit of paper loss on the reverse. Graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5 .
