The key card from an extraordinarily rare issue, this card was part of a multi-sport set featuring sports from different countries that was issued in El Salvador in 1928.  All in all, 14 baseball players are known, with Ruth clearly being the most popular.  These borderless cards were printed on quality stock from black and white photos, and then hand-tinted.  The photos are not seen in other card issues, unlike other issues from the 1920s that utilize the same image for multiple sets.  These cards are incredibly rare.  Fewer than 50 examples from the entire set have been graded by both grading companies combined.  For the Ruth collector, this is a spectacular find.  Just four graded copies of this card exist, and only one - a PSA 6 - has been graded higher.

Babe Ruth collectors strive to find every possible "playing days" card available.  Very few people have a Tabacalera La Morena card.  Presented is an opportunity to own one of the hobby's only known copies, in one of the highest available grades.
