Issued by the Worch Cigar Company of St. Paul, MN, this rare postcard-sized issue utilized photos which appeared in the Minneapolis Star and St. Paul Dispatch newspapers.  Though the cards do not mention the Worch company anywhere on them, they were distributed by mail in Worch Cigar envelopes.  The cards are found in multiple styles, which player names either printed or on the background, with or without team name, in a white or black box.  

The Ruth card is, of course, unquestionably the key to the issue, an incredibly rare and desirable card.  This example, graded VG 3 by PSA, boasts a crisp, clean image of the Yankees superstar, well-centered within its white borders, a slight bit of honest wear visible at each corner and along the edges.  The reverse exhibits some mild toning and discoloration related to age, some minor foxing visible as well.  As Ruth card values continue to rise, this represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire one of the more rare and highly sought-after cards issued of The Babe, one of just four of this "name and team in box" version graded by PSA.
