IN BRIEF

The Babe’s portrait strikes a fittingly somber tone on his 1948 Leaf card, which would become the final card of his much-celebrated life. Ruth was also appropriately given the #3 card in the set to match his jersey number which was retired by the New York Yankees in the summer of 1948. Only nine examples of this career capstone card have been graded higher than this exceptional SGC NM-MT 8 by either SGC or PSA. The ‘48 Leaf set was plagued with centering and registration issues as gum companies bounced back into action following the rationing of printing supplies during the Second World War - but this offering is worth every bit of its high grade, showcasing a crisp image and evenly spaced-off white borders.

THE ATHLETE

Babe Ruth, nicknamed “The Bambino” and “The Sultan of Swat”, is considered baseball’s first great slugger and the most celebrated athlete of his time. He won 7 World Series championships and was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame, Major League Baseball’s All-Century Team, and All-Time Team. His career spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935, beginning as a star left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. Yet he achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164). Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture.

THE OFFERING

A historically significant card as it became the final card of Babe Ruth’s life.
According to PSA, “On August 16, 1948, the world lost The Sultan of Swat for good. In its own way, this card represents a final farewell to the greatest slugger in baseball history.”
The asset received a PWCC-A stamp indicating it has eye appeal and overall presentation above what the assigned professional grade would suggest. In fact, PWCC believes it possesses qualities inherent with the top 70-85% of all examples of this specific trading card.
Between SGC and PSA, only nine submissions have been graded higher than this card. Both grading agencies combined report a total of 51 Grade 8’s out of a total of 1,655 submissions. This places this example in the top 4% of all submissions.
Only 10 of the 391 examples graded by SGC have achieved a NM-MT 8 grade
Sales in the Spring of 2021 for PSA 8s fetched $46,800 at Heritage Auctions and $50,400 at Robert Edward Auctions - though we prefer the centering on the offered asset in comparison.
Featuring rookie cards of Hall of Famers Jackie Robinson, Satchel Paige, Lou Boudreau, Joe Gordon, George Kell, and Larry Doby, the 1948 Leaf issue marks the first key release in a post-World War II world.
