Presented is a very attractive low-grade example of this Babe Ruth classic. The 1948-1949 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Ruth is one of the most popular and striking of all Babe Ruth cards. It is on virtually every short list of the most classic and recognizable of all postwar baseball cards. Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA) due to a number of condition flaws including rounded corners, light creases, and moderate staining on the front and back. This is a very attractive yet relatively affordable (compared to what this card would sell for in higher grade) example of one of the icons of postwar-card collecting. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
