When you hear the word “greatest” in baseball, only one name truly comes to mind: Babe Ruth. While players like Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Mike Trout, or Albert Pujols are legendary, The Babe stands tall. Ruth hasn’t played a game since 1935 but his ability is still being compared to here in 2022. Think of how frequently you have heard that Shohei Ohtani is the next “Babe Ruth.” On Tuesday, Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run and each highlight you heard was “Judge ties Ruth. ”When we see a Ruth card get pulled; it’s an all-time great. When that card also has Lou Gehirg’s name attached – OH. MY.
A box of 2017 Panini National Treasures baseball came with 1 pack of 8 cards, and each card is either autographed or has a relic such as a bat or jersey piece. The product is pretty high-end, too; retail price was $425. The possible hits in the product were INSANE, and here on Greatest Pulls of All-Time, you can see what we’re talking about.
Columbia Hobby broke a box of 2017 NT and the last card, a dual booklet, produced THIS:
A Legends Dual Cuts Booklet with cut signatures from BABE RUTH and LOU GEHRIG! Gehrig, Ruth’s teammate, is an iconic player himself. Seven World Series rings, two MVP awards, and even winning the Triple Crown in 1934 is on The Iron Horse’s resume.
One card with an autograph of Babe Ruth and an autograph of Lou Gehirg. This is why we love Card Breaks! You could have purchased a spot for under $100 and landed a card that you’ll talk about forever. …and probably worth a downpayment on a house.
