(LOT 61)
1929 Shonen Club (Kulubu) Babe Ruth Postcard PSA 5 EX

COLORFUL BABE!!! One of Babe Ruth's most artistic cards is this colorful PSA 5 EX 1929 Shonen Club postcard issued as part of a Japanese set including 40 subjects. It just so happens that the Babe is the only baseball player included in this eclectic 1929 set. These postcards were distributed with the August 1929 Shonen Club (Kulubu) Japanese youth magazine. A fine unmarked postcard, the Japanese caption on the front translates in captivating fashion as follows: "This is the moment Babe Ruth, known throughout the world as the Home-run King, swings with all his might and hits the ball. The ball flew far past the outfield and it appears to be a homerun. The catcher and umpire freeze in awe as they watch and as Babe looks pleased. The spectators in the stands are also breathless as they watch." One of the finest heart-stopping Bambino batting poses on any card, it turns back the clock to an era when Ruth's majestic homers turned the baseball world upside down!
