Modestly graded example of Babe Ruth from the 1928 F50 Tharp's Ice Cream set. The set is identical in design to several other issues of the era, such as Harrington's Ice Cream, Sweetman, and Yuengling's Ice Cream, but with advertising for Tharp's Ice Cream on the reverse. Collectors have always appreciated the rarity and primitive charm of this distinctive issue. The offered example of Ruth is bright and crisp, with a bold image, even wear to the corners, and centering toward the bottom right. Graded FAIR 1.5 by PSA due to heavy creasing. This is a very presentable example of the key card of Babe Ruth from this unusual and scarce 1920s set and would be an ideal addition to any Babe Ruth, Hall of Fame, or type-card collection. Reserve $2,000.
