1933 R319 Goudey #53 Babe Ruth PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $18,000

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA (submitted by REA). Magnificent EX-MT 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 four strong corners showing just a hint of even wear and virtually perfect registration. The card displays snow-white borders and is centered to the left. The back is entirely clean. This card has been consigned by a pioneer collector who did most of his collecting during the 1960s and 1970s with a very keen focus on condition and eye-appeal. This is a stunning example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++. SOLD FOR $18,000
