Over the years, there has been some confusion and misunderstanding concerning this incredible set. The classic George Ruth Candy Company card number one presented here is from the first and original printing run for the manufacturer. Second run printing was done on inferior stock that reproduced poorly. The second run series was also reprinted at some point, in a fashion similar to Ruth’s rather infamous Fro-Joy set. But make no mistake, this is one of the original Ruth cards. Issued on a limited, regional basis and ultra-scarce because of a promotion that allowed collectors to accumulate all 6 cards in the set and mail them to the company in return for an autographed Ruth baseball, solid examples from the set’s first print run are extremely scarce and ultimately more valuable than their later released cousins. Bid accordingly.
