Graded 20 FR 1.5 by SGC. Hall of Famer, in a highly prized “Rookie Card” appearance. The ultimate rookie card! There is, quite simply, no way to imagine that a 1-5/8" x 3" piece of cardboard could symbolize more history, more of the spirit of American sport, than this M101-5 card depicting Babe Ruth as a slender young pitcher with the Boston Red Sox. The rookie card of Babe Ruth represents one of the peak achievements in all of card collecting, and a captivating example of the coveted rarity is presented here. In many ways, the Babe's presence defined baseball, and this M101-5 is a cornerstone memento of his unparalleled career, a flavorful example of one of the most significant of all baseball cards. On the card's front, a magnificent image of the future legend – its essence unaffected by a single, horizontal crease – reveals his pitching follow-through. The piece's corners exhibit balanced, credible rounding from past handling. The well-registered cardfront presentation is wonderfully crisp and bright in its timeless aesthetic, and the unprinted reverse displays an area of toning at its left side. A foundation element of a meaningful Ruth collection, in personality-rich Fair condition.
