Default E122 Ruth

I was looking through SCP and came across this Ruth:

https://catalog.scpauctions.com/bids...e?itemid=44767

I am starting to pay attention to American Caramel cards and am trying to figure out the lay of the land a bit. I haven't seen very many E122 come up for sale but I also don't see a lot that talks about how difficult this set is relative to the others. Can anyone point me toward any good resources?

Thanks!

(Disclaimer: This is not my card and I have no idea who consigned it.)

E122's are tough! Much tougher than e121. That one's really nice for the grade...tiny bit o back damage dings it! Here's mine...NFS.

Awesome card and super rare. Paperless knocks down the grade I guess. Curious how many more e121 vs 122 on pop report? I am sure there’s huge separation in the numbers .

Without looking at the pop reports I would guess it would be something around 20 to 1 ratio E121 to E122 cards.

I'd ask glchen, he seems to have a very good read on most early sets and cards featuring the Babe.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the W575-1 Ruth from 1922 is even more rare. And the E121 George Ruth variation from 1921 may have the W575-1 beat rarity wise.

Are these amounts including both E121 Series of 80 and Series of 120 cards?

Just realized that there are no Ruth 'throwing' cards in the E121 Series set, so never mind.

Trust me. The E122 set is the least encountered of the 1920's American & National Caramel sets. This is one set even I never tried to complete.
