Description

The champion of cards from one of the most revered Upper Deck editions, this 2006 Exquisite Material Cuts Babe Ruth game-used signature card is serially numbered 1/2. The apex of scarcity, this Babe Ruth card couples a pair of swatches from "The Bambino's" New York Yankees jersey and a cut signature prominently signed at the bottom of the card. One of the most coveted modern cards, this Ruth is one of two produced and is pronouncedly marked 1/2 on this picturesque cardís surface. The Exquisite series came as a difficult redemption from the touted 2006 SP Legendary Cuts series. With only a pair of Exquisite redemption cards per case, and such cases costing well over a thousand dollars, the probability of securing a Ruth through those means is miniscule. With a perpetual demand for Babe Ruth cut signature cards, this proves to be an elusive proposition for those who only want the best. Other Ruth cards of such stature have recently sold for five figures, proving the enduring grandeur of this Yankees slugger. An on-card COA is found on the reverse from James Spence Authentication.
