1933 R319 Goudey #181 Babe Ruth

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

The #181 Ruth with green background from the 1933 Goudey series has long been considered one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards in addition to being one of the most popular cards in all of card collecting. Presented is a very modestly graded example of this great classic. Graded FAIR 1.5 by GAI, the offered card displays a number of condition flaws, including heavy creasing, rounded corners, and an ink stamp on the reverse. The important image of Ruth's face has, miraculously, been spared of many of these flaws and remains crisp and bright. We are especially pleased to present this card in part to illustrate that (while it may require some extra patience on the part of the collector) not all iconic classics have to cost a fortune. This is an ideal example for the collector who wants a real, original 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth card but is not interested in spending the thousands (or even tens of thousands) of dollars a higher-graded example would require.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $960
