(LOT 30)
1929 Shonen Club Babe Ruth PSA 1.5 FR

Bebu rusu!!! That's the Babe Ruth pronunciation in Japanese, where the Bambino grew the sport of baseball like no other. Tours of Japan during the 1930s helped grow the game in the Empire of Japan and Ruth will forever be embraced for his ambassadorship. Offered here is a 1929 Shonen Club Babe Ruth Postcard depicting the great American baseball icon purportedly hitting his first home run of the 1926 season. With slightly more than 100 examples have ever been graded by PSA, this 1.5 FR example stands as one of the rarities of Babe Ruth graded cards. This is an exceptional piece of history when Ruth was arguably the most recognizable and popular person on the planet.
