1915 Boston Red Sox Real Photo Postcard with Babe Ruth from Copeland collection
1915 Boston Red Sox Real Photo Postcard with Babe Ruth. From the famous Copeland Collection! This was Babe Ruth's rookie season (1915) and one of his earliest appearances on a piece of sports ephemera.

The back of the postcard has a postmark of April 12, 1916. The condition was somewhat optimistically listed as Near Mint.

It is thought by most hobby experts that this postcard was produced in 1915 and was perhaps first distributed during the World Series. Today, a couple dozen known examples remain, making it somewhat more scarce than the T206 Honus Wagner. Of these examples, only a handful might be considered "high grade" and very few have a period postmark on back and verifiable provenance. SCP a uction record -- "Copeland" provenance.
