1923 W515-1 Babe Ruth Strip Card (PSA MINT 9)
Out of stock
Advanced hobbyists are fairly unanimous in viewing W515-1 as a 1923 production. This was a “strip-card” issue, so called because its cards were retailed in uncut “strips” (several cards) without the benefit of an ancillary product. This offered Babe Ruth card from that creation was masterfully cut from its strip. The card features its fully-accepted dimension (1 3/8″ x 2 1/4″), and the condition has been declared MINT 9 by PSA. As should be expected of the lofty evaluation, the card is visibly flawless with impeccable centering, perfect resolution and exact corners. (Of subtle note in this Ruth rendering – the issue pre-dates Yankee uniform numbers by about eight years. And though Babe was, in 1923, regularly hitting third in the lineup, his card number in W515-1 (as indicated in the lower left) was #3.) This one promises to become a major component of the advanced Yankee collection.
