50 Hottest Babe Ruth Cards

50 Hottest Babe Ruth Cards

Few baseball players have the legacy that Babe Ruth has. In fact, he transcends the world of sports. He's part of something bigger in pop culture. Not surprisingly, even decades after his death, Babe Ruth cards continue to command tremendous attention in the hobby.

Many of the earliest Babe Ruth cards are extremely tough to come by. They came at a time when baseball cards were premiums designed to promote other items like gum and tobacco products. Today, whenever these pre-war cards come up for sale, they usually go for huge amounts.

As the hobby started to take shape in the 1950s, Ruth was often included in historical sets like 1952 Topps Look n See and 1954 Topps Scoops. Of course, the tributes and retrospectives came in baseball sets like 1962 Topps where Ruth had an entire subset dedicated to him.

Sales of modern Babe Ruth cards are highlighted by cut signature and memorabilia cards. While Babe Ruth game-used jersey and bat cards don't command as much as they once did, they're still much more popular than most players.

Below is a real-time list of the 50 most-watched Babe Ruth cards currently listed on eBay. It updates automatically, so whether you're a big-time Babe Ruth collector or you're just curious, be sure to bookmark this page or return often.

  1. I have some baseball cards that need to be sold I would like to know where in scarborough or Toronto I can take them to be looked at

  2. 2 weeks ago, I pulled the 1/1 Babe Ruth Bat Knob Card from the 2017 Leaf Babe Ruth Immortal Collection. Talk about luck… it was in the first box I opened! Certainly my best pull ever! Not sure what to do with it, however… I’m almost 70 yrs old, so a long-term addition to my collection seems pointless… Any advice or ideas?…
