1933 R319 Goudey #149 Babe Ruth SGC NM+ 86
Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $15,600
Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. Only five examples grade higher out of 293 cards evaluated by SGC to date. Beautiful and absolutely stunning ultra high-grade example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards: #149 Ruth with red background from the 1933 Goudey series. This is an extraordinary card! Perfect registration. Flawless colors. Sharp corners. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back. Centered very slightly to the top right, which is all that keeps this card from grading higher. The reverse is also essentially unimprovable with extremely bold green printing. This outstanding world-class example of one Babe Ruth's most important and highly prized baseball cards which would be a very significant addition to any 1933 Goudey set, Babe Ruth, or classic-cards collection. SOLD FOR $15,600
