1933 R319 Goudey #181 Babe Ruth

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,200

Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Beautiful example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards: #181 Ruth with green background from the 1933 Goudey series. This is a very attractive example, bright and clean, with a flawless image of Ruth. Bold colors, centering slightly to the bottom, and four strong corners showing light touches of wear (slightly more in the upper right). Boldly printed reverse. 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 very high quality card that would be a prize in any collection and is ideal for the collector who wants a particularly outstanding 1933 Goudey #181 Ruth card, but is not interested in spending the many thousands (or even tens of thousands) of additional dollars an example in a significantly higher grade would require. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $7,200
