1948 Leaf Baseball #3 Babe Ruth card. It has been graded and encapsulated by PSA NM 7. Of the 1,423 examples of this card listed in the PSA Population Report, only 46 have received a higher grade. It is also one of only 48 graded at this level by PSA, meaning that this card ranks in the top 6% of all PSA-graded 1948 Leaf Babe Ruth cards. The 1948 Leaf set marked Ruth's final appearance on a trade card during his lifetime. That fact, along with the card's attractive design, has resulted in it's status as one of the hobby's most iconic postwar cards. This is an exceptional example and one that would be a key acquisition for anyone assembling a high-grade 1948 Leaf complete set.
