Default 1914 Baltimore News Babe Ruth Rookie Card

Posted By: Alan

Stupid question, but I'm asking anyway: Of the eleven 1914 Baltimore Ruths that are known (according to REA), including the one owned by the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore, how many are the red variety & how many are the blue variety ? Which one is more rare ? Thanks.

Alan

Don't quote me for sure, but the last time I visited Rob, I think he said the blue one was the toughest of the two. He also said that it was undervalued (then again, does it really matter? How many of us could afford one?!).

Default 1914 Baltimore News Babe Ruth Rookie Card

There are nine Baltimore News Ruths that I have seen and two more that I have not seen but have heard of. Of the nine I have seen, five are blue and four are red. Of the two I have not seen, one is blue and one is red. So based on this info I don't think one can say one color is rarer than the other. Perhaps a better way to examine the question would be to look at the known population of all 1914 Baltimore News Cards, regardless of the player, and see if there is any statistically significant difference between the two colors.

EDITED to add that for the blue one I have not seen but only heard about, I can't rule out the possibility that it is one of those I had seen some years earlier. If that were to be the case, then I would know of only ten Baltimore News Ruths, five blue and five red. And the eleventh REA refers to would be one I had not previously been aware of.

Any thoughts on calling the 1914 Baltimore Sun a "rookie card?" It is a minor league card. I was always under the impression that a player's rookie card was his first Major League offering.
