This is the first example of this Babe Ruth card that we have ever seen. Ruth's name does not appear on this blank backed card, but the image sure looks like the Sultan of Swat. The registration is off and there is no paper covering the cardboard surface at top center, but it is a one-of-a-kind card of baseball's all time greatest player.

Size: 1 3/4" in diameter.

Condition: The card would be Ex/Mt, but the image was printed at the upper edge of an uncut sheet of paper, in a way that resulted in no surface paper containing the image being attached to the cardboard at the top. There is also a significant color registration problem.
