1933 V353 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey #93 Babe Ruth SGC NM 84 - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

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

Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher. Exceptional high-grade example of key card Babe Ruth from the 1933 World Wide Gum Canadian Goudey series. This example of #93 Babe Ruth (one of two Ruth cards in the set) is exceptionally crisp and clean, both front and back, with ideal natural toning and four square corners. It is perfectly centered side-to-side and approximately 70/30 top-to-bottom, which is likely all that keeps this card from grading even higher. The reverse displays bold green lettering printed in both English and French with just a few insignificant natural age spots which do not in the least detract from the outstanding visual appeal. This is a gorgeous card that looks NM-MT! Exceptionally crisp and stunning ultra high-grade example of one of the two Babe Ruth cards from this rare Canadian Goudey series. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $6,500. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000++. SOLD FOR $8,295
