2011 Heritage: Ruth as a Dodger!

Finally! A Baseball card set with Babe Ruth sporting some Dodger Blue. Of course, this isn't the first time a card like this was created, but it did take almost 50 years for them to do it again. Unfortunately, the above 2011 Heritage Ruth card is a reprint of a card that appeared in the original 1962 Topps set, so it really isn't a new card. I had hoped that if they made another Ruth as a Dodger card that they would use a better photo. I've seen plenty over the years that would look great on cardboard.

I'll also take some time to note that nearly 5 years ago I had won a Venezuelan version of the card on eBay- go and check it out here.
