Graded VG 3 (MK) by PSA. Rare and unusual real-photo postcard issued in Germany by Ross Verlag featuring New York Yankees Hall of Famer Babe Ruth and silent-film star Harold Lloyd. The card pictures the two men standing together during the filming of the 1928 release Speedy. The film was produced by Paramount, which is credited in the lower right corner of the photo. Bright and crisp, with even corner wear, perfect clarity, and writing on the reverse. Throughout the years, many cards of Babe Ruth were issued in countries other than America. These cards get very little attention, simply because most collectors are not familiar with cards not issued in America, but they represent some of the scarcest and most interesting of all Babe Ruth cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
