    1923 W515-1 Babe Ruth #47 SGC 88 NM-MT 8. Depicted in a New York Yankees road uniform that, inexplicably, features red letters, is The Sultan of Swat on a 1923 W515-1 strip card, which has been graded SGC 88 NM-MT 8. Strip cards were usually distributed in strips of ten images, which could be cut, by the owner, into individual cards. This example was cut very nicely along the lines, which are still barely visible, which is the ideal in this instance, as the card is at its intended width. The corners and edges are very sharp. The paper stock and surface show no wear. This is as fine as an example of this card that could be expected, which is reflected in its SGC census, as none grade higher in a population of thirty-four.
