The only baseball player included in the 32-card multi-sport "World's Champions" issue, Babe Ruth strikes a majestic drive to right field as his eyes follow the shot in the distance.  One of the finest images of all his Exhibit cards, it is also one of his most rare, with just 25 examples graded and only three higher.  There have been startlingly few examples of this card having sold publicly in the last decade.

This example has been graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, with a clean surface and outstanding image quality.  The only Exhibit card of Ruth featuring this photo, it is quite a stunning card.  Light chipping is visible at all four corners and upon closer examination of the edges, the card is accurately graded, yet still incredibly pleasing.  Aside from the extremely tough 1923 issue, perhaps the most highly-prized of all Ruth's Exhibit cards.
