1933 R319 Goudey #53 Babe Ruth PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $8,295

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Magnificent example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards: #53 with yellow background from the 1933 Goudey series. The "yellow background" pose of Babe Ruth is, without a doubt, his most difficult to obtain and sought-after card in the 1933 Goudey set. For some reason this card is also a condition rarity compared with other Ruth cards in the set. This is a particularly attractive example, bright and clean, with just a hint of even wear to all four corners, and virtually perfect registration. The card is well centered with snow-white borders. A few light surface scratches on the front are only noticeable under close inspection and do not detract in the least from the outstanding and attractive presentation of the card but are mentioned for the sake of accuracy. The back is entirely clean. This is a very attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $5,750. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $8,295
