Very presentable example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards: #181 Ruth with green background from the 1933 Goudey series. This example is bright and clean, with a flawless image of Ruth. Bold colors, centering to the left, and even, honest wear the corners. Boldly printed reverse. Moderately heavy creasing is solely responsible for the assigned grade of PR 1 by PSA. In our opinion, this card is still conservatively graded. This is a quality card that is ideal for the collector who wants a presentable 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 $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
