1930s Spanish Promotional Card of babe Ruth. The card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC as Authentic. The sepia toned image of Ruth holding a bat on his shoulder is clear with a stadium background. The text translates to, "It is difficult for his wave to be surpassed in personal magnetism." The corners are severely rounded and the edges are rough. There are multiple scattered creases and wrinkles. The blank backed reverse has light paper loss along the top border. There is a small hole on Ruth's elbow. The last example of this card sold in 2015 and this is one of two known to exist.
