Outstanding specimen, depicting the Sultan of Swat posing for the camera, bat in hand, in an iconic image that has graced many baseball card ads over the years.  The card has been graded VG 3 by SGC and is a blazer for the grade, with sharp corners and edges, a clean image, and some very slight color fade, notably along the left side of the card.  Some minor toning and surface wear is visible on the reverse.  Regardless, a bit of a head-scratcher, given the eye appeal.  A truly important example of one of the most popular of the exhibit cards, the 1926-29 Exhibit postcard back Babe Ruth.
