The Sultan of Swat! The offered 1921 E253 Oxford Confectionery Babe Ruth showcases a trio of desirable factors that pre-war hobbyists are consistently seeking: 1.) player/team combination; 2.) spectacular pose and 3.) scarce regional issue. This early "Big Apple" example features the Baltimore native clutching his weapon of choice while the slugger's New York attire is clearly recognizable. Aside from limited soiling on Ruth's left shoulder along with moderate perimeter wear, the black-and-white front otherwise presents a strong (VG-EX). Due to traces of reverse glue/lined paper residue, the card has been judged 20 Fair 1.5 by SGC. Only 25 total copies of the Pennsylvania issue have been evaluated by the third-party service.
