Graded VG 40 by SGC. Outstanding mid-grade 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. This is a very attractive card, with light, even corner wear and centering slightly to the bottom. Displaying only one surface wrinkle, this is a very pleasing (perhaps even conservatively graded) VG example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series, and one that offers collectors an outstanding opportunity to acquire a great-looking iconic Babe Ruth card at a fraction of the cost of a higher-graded example. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
