Default Babe Ruth Strip gone mad...HIGH END

Check out this one that just ended...touted as high end. I'd have thought a crease running vertically cutting the babe in half would disqualify this card from the "high end" moniker.

Apparently not...and note the strong "valuation!"

As I’ve stated many times before, “high end” in the description of so many listings (which clearly are NOT high end) makes me throw up in my mouth.

I think the sale price at that level more reflects that it had a number grade vs the common "auth" on the hand cuts. I would far prefer a more presentable auth personally, but people are obsessed with the silly number.

As for "high grade"...redic.

I think almost all strip cards are hideous, but $1,281 sure isn't "high end" when it comes to Ruth cards.

Personally, I prefer "SIC!!!!" cards that are the true "Holy Grail" of collecting. Particularly if they were found in an uncle's attic, being sold "as reprints" but "I can be the judge".

That's actually one of the more attractive strip cars I've seen. Doesnt look bad for the grade either.
