Wanted to post a couple of favorites that haven't shown up in the thread yet....

- a beat-up (but they usually are) Lections Ruth
- an uncut '33 Sport Kings sheet. Tough crease right through the Babe's face, but hard to get picky and wait for a nicer one!

I love the standing, relaxed pose, and vivid bright green background. The U.S. Caramel Ruth while not an appealing image (IMHO), was rarely encountered in the pages of advertisements in Sports Collectors Digest. So the opportunity to add Ruth to the Cobb and Gehrig I already owned, at a price that fit my budget, was seized upon. Owning them still brings a smile to my face today. Thanks for the chance to walk down memory lane.
Thanks for sharing your story, this is turning into a even more incredible thread than I anticipated!

Really nice items so far guys, keep them coming. Don`t own any Ruth cards, yes waited way too long to pull the trigger, but some nice memorabilia. Enclosed a snapshot of The Babe giving his agent Christie Walsh`s son some batting tips. Not sure of the year or uni, any guesses ?

A Sport Kings wasn't really on my radar for a 1933 Ruth, but this guy was the first '33 ever that fit my budget, so pulled the trigger just to see how it would feel to own one...and I really love it. Fragile and worn, but happy to be taking care of it now.

(That uncut sheet of Sport Kings above is insane, so many big cards on it, really neat!)

Default 1930s Josetti Babe Ruth & Harold Lloyd

This isn't my favorite Ruth, but it's a crossover card that I really like because it fits two of my collections. I'm a bit of a 3d/photography/movie nerd (I have thousands of stereoviews and over 300 cameras & viewers). Lloyd was a lifelong 3d photography enthusiast. Most of his photos have only been seen by the family, but I was lucky enough to catch a presentation last year by his granddaughter Suzanne where she showed a good variety of them.

His 35 Goudey is great and much lower pop than people realize, itís very difficult to find centered as well.

Ruth was sold to NY in 1919:
''What Ruth didnít know was that he was already the property of the New York Yankees. The papers were signed on Dec. 26, and cash had already changed hands.''

Are you saying that the card was produced in late December 1919 before the sale was announced to the public? I would not bet a lot on that being right.

I wasn't around back then to know for sure 😃 but the below article and research excerpt by John Dreker on 23 Jan 2021 related to Billy Southworth's Pirates card seems to make a pretty strong case that the W514 series was produced in the summer of 1919 (and likely released shortly after the start of 1920, given Ruth's NY Yankees team affiliation (yet Red Sox uniform sleeve color))....

''There are some questions based on player/team designations about the year/years of this set. Southworth helps a little here because he only played left field for the Pirates in 1919. Obviously it wouldnít have been produced before he moved from right field to left at the start of the 1919 season. He moved back to right field for good on August 8th, so it likely wasnít produced after the 1919 season ended because he went two months of the season (46 games) without a day in left field. That tells you that the set was probably produced in the summer of 1919, giving them enough time to realize he was in left field, while also allowing some time for his move back to right field mid-season to become permanent.

The blue on the collar and down the middle here was not part of the Pirates uniform during that time, though they did have blue in their colors. However, the black & white photo above has a red ďPĒ on the left pocket, not blue. The blue lettering there came along in 1920. At that same time, the Pirates dropped the solid blue hats, so that color combo didnít exist during his time in Pittsburgh. An artist was likely going off black & white photos with some notes, so I canít really blame them for the errors.''

That may or may not explain Southworth but there is no reason to believe that all the players were issued at the same time. If all the cards were issued in the middle of 1919 Ruth would be listed on the Red Sox. The Ruth card was obviously issued in 1920 or later.

Here is the iconic follow-through. Russwood Park, Memphis, an exhibition between Yankees and the Southern Association Memphis Chicks (Chickasaws) in 1932. Many such exhibition games were played by teams on their way north after spring training broke up.

While I have several Ruth cards, I am partial to the German Abdullah issue. Will try to post a scan later but am always drawn to the sepia toning and the Babe leaning in a louche pose on his bat.

I'm sure it has been covered here in past but--what is the story with this card? Super rare (e.g. this is the only SGC graded) but allegedly a great mystery. Would love to know. I never even saw it until today....

Greg,
That's actually a 1929 Universal Toy Ruth - flip is incorrect from 'ol SGC

Look carefully at the three cards even though you cannot see them in this post.

I'll give you a couple of minutes to find them before asking my question.

Ready?

They look like the same image. Correct?

My question is "Did Babe Ruth ever play Right Field, Left Field and Pitch in the same game?"

The drawing looks more like Jimmie Foxx to me instead of Babe Ruth. And I don't remember seeing this Ruth card before.

Most of the 1933 Goudy cards in the set on fire including all 4 Ruth cards-!

Guess Iím on the 144 team but these cards you guys are posting are incredible. I guess the 1921 Exhibits would be my bucket list Ruth.

Default Babe Ruth

The 21 Exhibit is my favorite by far. Great shot of Ruth and a very underrated issue.

I often think about all the tobacco, candy and gum cards that were carried around in billfolds, used as bookmarks tossed in a junk drawer or night stand and it's kind of amazing that any of them made it. One day I am going to buy a used book from an estate sale or antique shop and it's going to have a T206 Cobb right in the middle of it...I just know it!
