    1922 E121 American Caramel Series of 120 "Babe" Ruth, Holding Ball PSA EX 5 - Pop Two, One Higher. This card is extremely difficult to find in high-grade levels. From the American Caramel series of 120 from 1922, this is one of three different poses featuring legendary New York Yankees HoF outfielder Babe Ruth. Simply called the "Holding Ball pose, this depiction of the Babe was also used for his E120 series (available elsewhere in this auction) and has "Babe" in quote marks. Cards from this series, and especially featuring Ruth, rarely are available in this type of condition. Graded PSA EX 5, this is one of only two cards to grade EX by PSA, there is one rated higher. Currently, PSA has only reviewed nineteen total examples of this card. Considering most don't hesitate to submit any Ruth card that number certainly suggests this is not an easy card to acquire.
