Graded EX 5 by PSA (submitted by REA). This card was one of the highlights of an untouched original-owner collection consigned to this auction! Presented is a very attractive mid-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. The offered card is crisp and clean, with a flawless image which is centered toward the bottom. Honest corner wear and light discoloration along the white border account for the assigned grade. Clean reverse. 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 $2,500.
