Graded GOOD 2 by GAI. Extremely presentable, modestly-graded 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. Bold colors, near-perfect centering, and moderate, even wear at the corners. A crease extends horizontally across the card. The reverse displays a small amount of glue residue and small areas of paper loss. An excellent opportunity to acquire one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series and one of card-collecting's iconic cards at a fraction of the cost of a higher-graded example. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
