    Description

    C. 1920's W-Unc Playing Cards Babe Ruth SGC 20 Fair 1.5. Far more needs to be discovered regarding the world of the "W" issues of the 1920's. This rare Ace of Diamonds playing card features Babe Ruth who is one on only three known baseball subjects from this obscure edition. The card stock is the same fragile type used for other issues issued in panels and one day an uncut panel from this set will be found. As far as roster additions, none will be more popular than Babe Ruth. This creased and hand cut example has been graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5. This is the only example intact enough to earn a numeric grade.
