(LOT 29)
1923 W515-2 #3 Babe Ruth Hand Cut PSA 5 EX

RUTH'S CHAMPIONSHIP YEAR!!! The Sultan of Swat's #3 and #47 subjects are the headliners of the 1923 W515 strip card set that includes 60 players issued as six separate strips, each of which included 10 cards. Most significantly, each of these classic images were taken from an original Underwood & Underwood photograph, with some of the cards revealing a copyright symbol and "U & U" caption affixed somewhere near the image's frame, in this case, on the upper border. The Babe's legendary portrait exhibits fine clarity and a robust red setting, extremely well-centered between four off-white borders. The corners depict even wear consistent with the assessment, and no obtrusive flaws are evident on either side. Considering roughly 50% of the total PSA graded examples reflect Authentic assessments due to irregular manual edge trims, this splendid PSA 5 offering truly resides as a bona fide keeper for your prized Bambino gathering!

MIN BID $750
