    1928 Babe Ruth Candy Co. Babe Ruth #5 SGC 80 EX/NM 6 - Highest Recorded Grade. After his 60 home run performance in 1927, Babe Ruth was the most recognizable man on the planet. It is only befitting he had a candy that bore his name. As advertised, a set of six cards could be exchanged for the treasured prize of a Babe Ruth signed baseball. Beware of reissues and reproductions, but rest assured this is the genuine article. Not only genuine but the combination of the bright white, high quality card stock, black print and sharper quality portraits are the finest combination one would certainly want for their collection. Offered is card #5 featuring Babe Ruth in a tender moment kissing his daughter. Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6, one of three at the EX/NM level with none higher. For the entire series this is one of five cards at this grade level with none higher. A Type 1 photo of this touching scene is available in this auction.
