Each of these 19 thrilling items has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. To the Babe Ruth collector, the fact that these "Sultan of Swatch" cards exist at all is the fulfillment of the wildest, most hopeful imaginings; the presentation of the near set here offered—with its sequential, true-to-life glimpses of the great Bambino that incorporate actual fibers of his personal equipment—is nothing short of breathtaking! Here are 119 different Game Used Pants cards from the 21-card "Sultan of Swatch" issue, along with the impossibly rare headline piece that also contains a lovely personal signature cut (pencil, "10") scripted by the legend, himself. These remarkable collectibles, which constitute "The Number One All Time Finest Set" of their kind on the PSA Set Registry, are individually serial numbered to document their exclusivity. (The swatch/signature piece, one of just three such items produced, carries the ultra-elite "1 of 3" designation.) Additionally, their level of condition is essentially peerless: a single higher-graded example has been confirmed in the case of just five numbers. The extraordinary collection includes: Graded PSA GEM MT 10: 3 cards w/#'s 7 (serially numbered "08/27"), 16 ("04/29") and 18 ("29/31"); PSA MINT 9: 10 cards w/#'s JC1 Signature Cuts ("1/3"), 1 ("05/14"), 2 ("16/29"), 4 ("26/54"), 8 ("27/32"), 9 ("10/20"), 14 ("25/27"), 15 ("24/28"), 17 ("21/30") and 19 ("06/33"); PSA NM-MT 8: 3 cards w/#'s 11 ("21/23"), 13 ("23/26") and 20 ("30/36"); PSA NM 7: 3 cards w/#'s 3 ("83/94"), 5 ("02/59") and 12 ("23/24"); PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, #21 ("44/48"). The near set is missing #'s 6, 10 and 14 for completion. Absolutely, the ultimate gallery for the Babe Ruth enthusiast! LOAs from Steve Grad/PSA DNA and from James Spence Authentication.
