Extremely attractive example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards, #149 with a red background from the 1933 R319 Goudey series. This is a magnificent and striking example, bright and clean, with virtually perfect registration (such a crisp image is rare to find with this particular card), four strong corners, and excellent centering. Boldly printed reverse. This card presents as Near Mint but has been encapsulated by SGC as "Authentic" due to evidence of trimming and minor color touch ups in a few spots along the edges (more visible from the reverse). This is a very attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series, potentially representing an extraordinary collector value compared to a similarly pleasing, numerically graded example. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
