Babe Ruth Gypsy Queen- Topps
 
Taken only for what it is, and forget about the asking price, do you like this card?
I should state that the question is pertaining only to the way it looks, not the manufactured rarity aspect of it or anything else. (I have no affiliation with the seller whatsoever)

voted don't like only because Ruth didn't pertain to that era and it is kind of a crappy picture to boot. May also be the scan

Once I dismiss the intentional manipulation of the number of copies printed to create value, yes, I do find the image of Babe and the overall style of the card to be well done.:)

Not a big fan of that image...really a poor representation/execution of the Bambino...there's got to be a better way to spend $250...

I like it, for what it is....I sure wouldn't pay that kind of money for a modern card though.....to each their own.

Sincerely, Clayton

I don't care for the image and why is it a Gypsy Queen. Weird combo.

Card has weak eye appeal. I'm guessing they were trying to go for a lithograph appearance, but they overdid it. It has the effect of making the Babe look older and ragged in that image.

I voted - don't care.

I like the idea. I think this sort of thing can help promote the vintage card hobby. This particular example does not have a ton of eye-appeal to me. Execution could have been better. Not terrible, but not great.

I don't like that Yankees is in italics.

I voted that I like the GQ Ruth, but I don't like this leather variation. It gives it that canvas look that ruins the photo. This one is much better:
