Never seen it before. His eyes being closed is a bit disconcerting. Neat card and it's always great to see something not too known, with the Babe on it.

It is the same image as on the dust jacket of Babe Ruth, Home Run King, published in 1920

This looks modern to me from the looks of the back.

Have to say that I am inclined to agree. The back looks like a stamp rather than printed back. We've been seeing these a bit over the last few years, though not this particular back. How is the fidelity of the image when looked at through a loop? Print dots or photographic?

Hi Jason...good to hear from you. I have my concerns too about the vintage of this card. The stamp box (1917) doesn't really match up with the picture (1920) but I could rationalize that away with old RPPC stock bring used.

A quick search on the publisher Societe Anonyme, shows that this was an organization of New York based art enthusiasts who did publish postcards. All other subjects seem to be art related, may be Ruth coming to New York was such a big deal that they did a card with his image...??

I don't have the card, I'm considering a purchase and was hoping I'd find a Net54 member with another I could use as a comparison.
