    Description

    One of only two examples in PSA population!

    1916 Standard Biscuit D350 Babe Ruth Rookie PSA Good 2. In a collecting hobby dominated by the traditions of tobacco and bubble gum, the humble "D-Card," nomenclature designating original distribution through the sale of baked goods, stands as a tiny but important footnote. Fewer than twenty-five species exist within the full spectrum of D-Cards, each surviving today in the thinnest populations.

    One suspects that the perishable nature of baked goods was the reason that so few bakers threw their caps into the trading card ring--once the bread went stale, the loaf or biscuits were simply discarded (no pun intended), wasting their cardboard commemoratives.

    Presented is one of the most significant survivors bearing the D-card DNA, one of only two Standard Biscuit Babe Ruth rookies residing within a PSA slab. It dates to the young southpaw's greatest pitching season, one in which the twenty-one year old legend on the rise bested all American League pitchers with a microscopic 1.75 ERA in the regular season before pitching thirteen shut-out innings in Game Two of the World Series en route to a Boston Red Sox World Championship.

    The condition of the card falls in line with most paper commemoratives celebrating a centennial, the rounded corners and scattered creasing typical but hardly problematic when considered in the context of the card's elite rarity and significance. Take a good look--you may never see one of these again.
