Graded EX 5 by PSA. Magnificent 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 just a hint of even wear to all four corners (little more wear on the lower right), and virtually perfect centering. The back is entirely clean. This is a very attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 R319 Goudey Gum series. The SMR value in the assigned grade is $7,750. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
