(LOT 18)
1929 R315 Babe Ruth PSA 5.5 EX+

BAMBINO!!! Ruth's irrefutable stature as baseball's greatest all-time player is "set in stone", and it is an inconceivable thought that this swashbuckling ballplayer would have been a Hall of Fame pitcher had he not been moved from the pitching rubber to an everyday outfielder in lieu of his incredible batting prowess. One of the "Bambino's" most desirable late-1920s cardboard heirlooms is the eclectic 1929 R315 subject, presented here in an outstanding PSA 5.5 holder. This resides as the SOLE example at this imposing plateau with a mere eight examples graded higher. Bright white borders, an extremely sharp perimeter, strong right-angle corners and a clean blank-back complete this time defying marvel that merits a secure place in any esteemed Ruthian collection.
MIN BID $1,500
