1933 R319 Goudey #149 Babe Ruth PSA EX 5
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,036.25
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Beautiful example of one of Babe Ruth’s most famous and classic cards: #149 with red background from the 1933 Goudey series. This is a magnificent and striking example, bright and clean, and with virtually perfect registration (such a crisp image is rare to find with this particular card), and very well centered (just slightly toward the bottom border). Crisp and clean, both front and back, with a perfectly centered and boldly printed reverse. In an extremely desirable condition, this is an ideal card for the collector who wants an outstanding 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth in high grade, but who is not interested in spending the many thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars a significantly higher-graded example would require. SMR value in assigned grade is $4,000. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $5,036.25
