Graded NM+ 7.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Exceptional high-grade example of Babe Ruth from the R315 "Portraits and Action" series. The R315 set has been referred to as the "Portraits and Action" series ever since Jefferson Burdick named it in the 1930s in his first American Card Catalog. It is unknown exactly how they were issued or whether this is a formal name provided by the issuer. Bright and crisp, with four strong corners, outstanding picture quality, and near-perfect centering. The blank reverse shows several scattered black marks. R315s are found printed on several different quality stocks. This example is printed on the highest-quality black-and-white style stock. One of Babe Ruth's few cards dating from the late 1920s, in extraordinary high grade. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open).
