Lot #12: 1921 E121 American Caramel "Series of 80" Babe Ruth – PSA NM 7 "1 of 1!"


This lot closes on May 22nd, 2021 at 10:00 PM EDT for initial bids.

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Hall of Famer. This is the lone copy at its tier (with none graded higher) among a total of fewer than four dozen examples recorded in PSA’s census reporting.

There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that sets a collection apart like the presence of a vintage Babe Ruth card. The defining moments of the legend's early career – when captured and experienced through a memento that actually hails from the same period and which pictures the era's hero, years later – are felt in a manner that never loses its emotional appeal. That priceless sensation becomes particularly acute when the inspiration is one of the collecting industry's "Best of the Best" Babe Ruth cards, as presented here.

An exceptional reminder of Ruth's throwing form is presented on this sought-after, Yankees-era remembrance. Negligible traces of corner touching do not impinge upon the much-admired entry's poignant aesthetic, and its "80 player" reverse-side text is fully legible. The card is uniquely fresh in its preservation quality, and the sight of it inspires boundless satisfaction in the thoughtful observer. A desirable and visually captivating specimen, in singular Near Mint condition.
