(LOT 250)
1921 W551 5-Card Un-Cut Strip Card Panel w/Ruth, Cobb & Speaker (PSA EX/MT 6) – The SOLE & HIGHEST GRADED Example!

This "unique for the grade" PSA EX/MT 6 un-cut strip card panel portrays five baseball players including Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker. The SOLE "EX/MT 6" example on PSA's illustrious "Pop" Chart, it stands tall as the finest of its kind, with the only two other encapsulated copies residing in 'Authentic" holders! The 1921 W551 Strip Card set included 30+ sports personalities, of which 10 represented formidable baseball players. Ultra-rare to say the least, three of the five players in this strip are bona-fide Cooperstown Inductees, with the Babe Ruth subject obviously stealing the show.

One of Ruth's most popular strip cards, it includes a "one of a kind" pose of the Bambino, issued during the second year of his remarkable Yankee career he was embarking on. The Babe would wallop 59 round-trippers and knock in 168 runs his second campaign in Yankee pinstripes, out-homering virtually every other major league team! Of course, Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker also reside as two of the finest players in our National Pastime's glorious history, with both of these immortals terrorizing AL hurlers for 20+ seasons. Rounding out the five players are Jesse Barnes and Wally Pipp, with this super aesthetically pleasing 5-subject panel revealing no obtrusive flaws whatsoever, and residing as one of the most electrifying cardboard treasures from the early 1920's!
