Default Could I get info on vintage Ruth card

Could anyone give me information on this card and a rough value.
I am new to the forums and am still not sure of posting pic yet.
I have recently come across some vintage Babe cards, but have no idea about this graded 9 beauty, as I am mainly a vintage hockey guy.
Any replies will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks



Hoping this will work
Let me know

Looks more like a cut from a magazine page then an actual card

I did a search and came up with a book titled Babe Ruth: The Idol of the American Boy by Daniel M. Daniel. 1930, Whitman Publishing Co. Maybe it was cut out from that book and slabbed by the fine people at AAA Grading, a name you can trust!

Kamac: There is a species of human-insects that cut out pictures from books, old Reach catalogs, Spalding guides etc, "grade'' them with their own "grading" service and sell them for silly prices on eBay. Often they will call them "paper stock", a technical nicety, instead of "cards", but either way they have zero worth in the hobby of vintage cards.

You've nailed it - here's the page it was cut from:

Yeah, sorry to say that's not a card, but a book cutout. Thinking the back of it has several parts of different star players, which are usually cut out and sold individually, under the guise that they are part of a "puzzle" and form Babe Ruth on the back. How do I know this? I got burned early in my vintage career with a few of them! Same lame BS grading slab also! Junk.


Edited to say: I was beat to the punch. First I've actually seen the uncut up page!

Thanks Karl! It's too bad somebody had to go and ruin a nice book.

Kawika is of course bang on.

The book itself--complete--is in fact very common, and can be found on eBay for $30 or under with a little patience
