1980 Franchise Babe Ruth Checklist and Details


This 80-card set measures the standard size and was manufactured by the Franchise of Bel Air, Maryland. The cards present the life of Babe Ruth and include his activities both on and off the field. So while there’s plenty of in-game action, you also get shots of him dressed up, looking like he’s pondering the meaning of life and even eating a sandwich.

The simple fronts have black and white photos framed by white borders.

Backs provide some context for the photos with a short bit of text.
