Description

Although panned by critics and baseball historians alike, the offered 1948 Swell Babe Ruth Story complete set of (28) cards will still draw considerable interest, especially since five cards picture “The Bambino” himself. This interesting issue has an overall condition breakdown of 33% (EX to EX-MT), 25% (VG-EX), 21% (VG) and 21% (GD or lesser) with the tougher high numbers generally presenting on par with the lower numbers. Keys include #1 In The Making/Ruth (VG), #22 Lyons/Bendix (EX), #24 Gomez/Bendix/Harris (VG-EX), #25 Ruth/Bendix (EX-MT), #26 Ruth/Bendix (VG-EX), #27 Ruth/Trevor (FR) and #28 Ruth/Bendix/Trevor (VG). Due to rudimentary factory printing techniques of the age, size variances are present.
