    1922 E121 American Caramel "Babe" Ruth, Holding Bird SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. Extremely difficult to find in high-grade, this American Caramel card from the E121 Series of 120 features the legendary New York Yankees Hall of Fame outfielder Babe Ruth. One of several Ruth variations in the series, this one has "Babe" in quote marks and pictures him holding a bird while standing next to an unidentified individual during what appears to be some type of pregame ceremony. Cards from this series, and especially featuring Ruth, rarely are available in this type of condition. This represents a fantastic opportunity to add this gem to one's early candy card collection.

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