Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Superb high-grade example of Babe Ruth in a classic batting pose from the R316 Kashin Publications set. Ruth, of course, is the key card to the distinctively designed 101-card R316 set. This is a large card (3.5 x 4.5 inches), which contributes to the extreme rarity of R316s in high grade. This example displays four sharp corners, strong picture quality, and centering toward the right. Few cards of Ruth date from the 1920s. Issued during the short window of time between the strip cards of the early 1920s and the colorful bubble-gum cards of the early 1930s, this card has always been appreciated for its powerful image of Ruth. A remarkable high-grade example of this classic Ruth card, worthy of the world's finest Babe Ruth, R316, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $1,000.
