Yes, he played for the Striped Sox. They were a low budget team who could not afford pants or jerseys, only hosiery.

Ethan-If Frederick Photos were issued in 1921 why do they have Ruth in a Boston uniform? Also, any idea how these cards were distributed?

I assume that they used an older photo just like E121s, M101-6 and other cards that were issued a year or two after Ruth was traded to the Yankees.

From what I can recall, Frederick Foto was a Northern California company and was the photographer of the Sacramento Senators. Many of the cards in the set picture PCL players, so that makes sense.

Yes, I think that Kevin has it right on this issue. The cards are very scarce. I believe only a few Ruth's have been graded by SGC and PSA. Love the pose, size of the card and the image of him with a bat in a Red Sox uniform.

Thanks guys! This is luckily my second one. Orlando my plan wasn't to get one per son lol, but that would be great! I traded Ethan my Frederick Foto for the PC, so it worked out well for both of us. Ethan that's a fantastic card.

Ryan, and everyone, super pickups this month. The hobby is doing well in August!

Interesting!!! I think you guys should share the logistics of said trade on the BST, in its own thread...kind of a reverse sale thread...outlining every penny allocated!
