Default Babe Ruth

What’s your very favorite Ruth you own? Also the favorite you’d love to own regardless of cost or value. Share pics and enjoy!

Thanks all Josh.

I'll go first. I only own two "playing days" Ruth cards....both are pretty beat up. But they are two of my all time favorite cards in my collection...because they are baseball cards of BABE RUTH!

Here are my w517 and 1935 Goudey.

Ruth.JPG

As far cards I WISH I owned? A 1933 Goudey 181 (the green Ruth) is my grail card. Part of the reason I like the 1935 is because it uses that same image.

While it's recent price increase may have put it out of reach forever, I've considered maybe cashing out my post war collection someday and putting all the funds into that one card.

This is my favorite. Financial considerations aside, I can't think of a Ruth card I'd rather have. Maybe the D350-1.

Always loved this one. Not the most expensive, but that image is second to none.

I have and love the e121 montage. But I like your two pose montage better than the three pose.

Nice cards, gentlemen.

This will be shown up in short order, but it's mine, I could barely even have dreamed about it as a kid, and it's the centerpiece of my collection. I can show it to nearly anyone, collector or not, and they'll regard it with interest.

His w517 strip pair of cards I think are certainly his finest looking strip cards!

I'm going to cheat and post two cards. They are both among my favorites of all of my cards. The Goudey 144 is absolutely beautiful and maybe my favorite image on a card of all time. I was stunned that I was able to pick up the E220 last year. Love E220's, really love that it is from Ruth's prime, love the image, love everything about it!

I don't think you can go wrong with this Ruth image. There are multiple cards I really like, but this image is probably my favorite. If money/cost were no object, I'd love to own the Baltimore News Ruth, but obviously that will never happen.

That Mendelsohn is great, Pete. I love the oversized cards.

I guess if I had to pick my favorite:



The one I'd most like to own is the 1914 Baltimore News. And so no one is left hanging, let me answer the question: not gonna happen.

This is an impressive thread! My favorites are these oddball items that are the least valuable of my Ruth's.

The first being a Japanese book published in 1948. Babe Ruth: Immortal Home Run King (is what I'm told it says)

The 2nd being a transcript of a radio broadcast of the 1932 World Series that talks a out his called shot. Unfortunately it doesn't say he actually called his shot.

My favorite Ruth card of all is Goudey 144 for its sheer looks. Even when I owned all 4 Goudeys, I would always look at the 144 first, last, and most.

If I were able to magically own any other Ruth card I would go with either the Frederick Foto or the Balt News.

My favorite Ruth card I own. Best of the four Goudey Ruths in my opinion.


Another favorite


The Ruth I wished I owned would be one of the 1916 M card rookies. Should have pulled the trigger ten years ago when they were going for under twenty grand which seemed preposterously expensive at the time. Who knew?

Just love this set for some reason. There’s a great Sisler on eBay (not mine) if you want to add another one.

I have a number of faves, hard to pick one. I'll limit myself to 5 for now lol. Yea I love the Black and White issues!

If I won the Mega Millions I'd hunt for a Baltimore News and/or an M101 RC and a 1917 Collins/Boston store type among other rare ones...

Great cards everyone!! keep 'em coming!

I only have a small number of Ruth playing day cards. Of these, I like the image on the Sanella best.


If money was no object, I agree with others in this thread...the 1921 Exhibit is just a fantastic card - my favorite.

My favorite of all time...playing days 1919 W514.

Bold colors, just mesmerizing. 'Home Run King' says it all! The Babe's last Red Sox card (Red Sox colors) / 1st Yankees card. The Babino's Curse card, with fewer than 100 SGC and PSA graded examples. And, year of the White Sox WS scandal.

Most undervalued Ruth card IMHO. The Bambino has an entire US Baseball league in his honor, and his estate still makes more money annually than most of us here. A true legend, and a remarkable playing days card to memorialize that fact.

Wow. Not the point I know but do you remember what you would have paid back then? Some folks like to say Goudey ruth is “overrated” because the pops are high. Easy to forget they’re the best looking cards of the greatest player from one of the most important sets.

Default Babe Ruth

My favorite Ruth is this 1949 LEAF....because I paid only a penny for it in the Spring of 1949; and, I have a sentimental attachment to it.




Aesthetically speaking, this one is also my favorite....






And, I will include this rarely seen 1949 LEAF Premium of the Babe......

Default This will be the 3rd vote for this one!

Definitely my favorite. Followed closely by Goudey #144.

Would be nice to own one of the black and white rookies with a printed back.

Thanks, Carter. I do remember what I paid for the first two. I was a sophomore in college and by necessity watched every penny. I was "rich" from my summer job and popped for $25 each. I was broke by October. The other two were bought at local card shows in the later '70s for; I think, around $50 each. Definitely less than $100. I love the entire set!

That’s amazing - thanks for sharing.

I'm on the #144 team.



I'd really like to pick up an early '20's E or Exhibit. But I think that ship has sailed.

Bold colors, just mesmerizing. 'Home Run King' says it all! The Babe's last Red Sox card (Red Sox colors) / 1st Yankees card (made and released between trade to NY). The Babino's Curse card, with fewer than 100 SGC and PSA graded examples. And, year of the White Sox WS scandal.

Most undervalued Ruth card IMHO. The Bambino has an entire US Baseball league in his honor, and his estate still makes more money annually than most of us here. A true legend, and a remarkable playing days card to memorialize that fact.
The sale of Babe Ruth to the Yankees was first announced on January 5, 1920. That says that at earliest this card is from 1920.

For me it is a toss up between the 1933 Sports King Ruth, and the 1932 U.S. Caramel Ruth. Back when I started collecting, Sports Kings Ruth was considerably cheaper than 1933 Goudey Ruth cards (although I would eventually own all four numbered variations of Ruth cards too). 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.

+1 Agreed. They're not even especially common. The double printed #144 only has ~2100 graded combined between PSA and SGC. You could add a 0 to the end of that number and still be nowhere close to meeting demand for the card.

Josh, there are a lot more favorites I DON'T own (eg that Collins Ruth above and several others shown) but here are some favorites of mine. I have a bit of a soft spot for the Cuban cards . . .
