Babe Ruth 1921 W551 Hand Cut. PSA 2

While the 1933 Goudy Set gains all the attention, there are plenty of earlier Ruth issues that provide great value for someone looking to acquire an original Babe Ruth Baseball Card. Offered here is the classic 1921 W551 Hand Cut from Ruth’s second season with the Yankees. The W551 set was printed in strips and had to be individually hand-cut. This typically resulted in poor centering and rough edges. Finding nice examples with good eye appeal is extremely tough, and this particular Ruth features nice centering and clean edges. These early hand-cut strip cards are a great way to invest in early Babe Ruth cards. They are from early in Ruth’s Yankee career and a fraction of the cost compared to more popular later sets!
