1933 R319 Goudey #53 Babe Ruth
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,800
Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. An extremely attractive 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 very attractive example, bright and clean, with light touches of wear at the corners and flawless registration (which can sometimes be a problem with this particular card). Outstanding centering, slightly to the right. The back is clean with bold green print set against a white background. This is a superb example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $7,800
