Difficult midgrade card of Babe Ruth, featuring the same image of the Yankees hero featured on his E120 card.  One of the more attractive and scarce strip card issues of the 1920s, the W572 cards all featured the same player images as the E120s, issued in ten-card strips with blank backs.  Due to their method of issue, each example is hand-cut, and midgrade specimens are seldom found.  Indeed, of the 31 examples graded by SGC, just four have attained a grade of VG/EX 4, with only three higher.
