For the connoisseur and the casual collector, for the Yankee fan and the Red Sox fanatic, for everyone who loses sleep over the game and everyone with a passing fancy for what baseball means to this glorious nation, there is no more important representation of our national pastime than the tiny cardboard antiquity, which once came wrapped with a stick of gum, with the image of the one man who shall forever remain bigger than the game, and bigger than life, George Herman Ruth. This glorious Goudey Big League Chewing Gum masterpiece has been handled, loved, shared, traded and celebrated over its 90 year lifespan. While its corners may be rounded, its colors less than glowing and new, and it's white borders dulled by a near century of adulation, this miniature monument to baseball’s greatest player remains a prize of the highest degree. We encourage you to pursue this treasure. At a PSA 1 grade with a punchhold and MK designation because of a star stamp on the back, it will be more affordable than its higher grade, more highly prized cousins; however, it will nonetheless remain an original Babe Ruth, which means it will remain the cornerstone of your collection.
