Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Very attractive mid-grade example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards: #53 with yellow background from the 1933 R319 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. Clean and crisp card, with even wear to all four corners, flawless registration, and excellent centering. The card has been downgraded due to the presence of several creases, which appear to have been flattened at one time in an attempt to be less noticeable. Boldly printed reverse. Excellent opportunity to acquire one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 R319 Goudey Gum series and one of card-collecting's iconic cards at a fraction of the cost of a higher-graded example with a similar appearance. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
