Easily the finest and most attractive of all Babe Ruth's strip card issues, the portrait card (#20) from the W517 set features a close-up portrait of the Babe in his Yankees cap and jacket.  This example has been graded VG+ 3.5 by SGC, with light overall wear notable mostly at the corners.  Slightly off-center, the card and the issue are both extremely attractive and underrated, but recent sale prices would indicate it is rapidly increasing in value.
