(LOT 56)
1928 Fro-Joy #5 "Babe Ruth's Grip!" PSA 6 EX-MT

BABE'S BATTING GRIP!!! You can literally feel the intensity of the Sultan of Swat's legendary batting grip on this PSA 6 EX-MT 1928 Fro-Joy offering that, along with a meager four examples, has only been best by three PSA specimens! Indeed, Ruth's right hand's pinky finger has encompassed his mighty lumber's knob, the classic batting grip that ultimately led to 714 round-trippers. While the image does favor the right edge with a slight tilt towards the upper left corner, the imposing clarity, contrast and relatively clean surfaces all justify the grade. Even more impressive is the spine-tingling caption that appropriately reads: This is how "Babe" Ruth grips his bat as he steps up to add one more home run to his string. Try it out on your own "Louisville Slugger". Like a majority of the other Fro-Joy subjects, this enthralling pose provides the collector with a unique cardboard Ruth image!
