(LOT 65)
1934 Quaker Oats Babe Ruth Premium Photo PSA 1 PR

QUAKER OATS RUTH!!! One of the most imposing Babe Ruth premiums is his 1934 Quaker Oats 8" x 10" memento that portrays a magnificent batting pose of the immortal Sultan of Swat as he watched another colossal homer soaring towards the Yankee Stadium bleachers. This PSA 1 PR offering exhibits strong eye appeal in the VG-EX+ range, with its assessment most likely due to backside surface remnants from scrapbook removal. Stealing the show is the captivating Ruth illustration, boasting the finest possible contrast and clarity, with the stray wrinkles situated within the lower region rendered virtually negligible versus the Cooperstown-worthy central image. Indeed, this classic Bambino pose literally brings the photo to life, with the final exclamation point being the lower caption stating: "Presented to Members of the Babe Ruth Baseball Club – By the Quakers Oats Company. Makers of Quaker Puffed Wheat and Puffed Rice".
