Attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards, #181 Ruth with green background from the 1933 Goudey series. Encapsulated by PSA as "Authentic" due to evidence of alteration, this example shows a possible slight trim and a foreign substance added to the corners. Presenting as Good, this card displays bold colors, excellent registration, centering slightly toward the bottom, and three surface wrinkles. The boldly printed and well-centered reverse exhibits color toning. This is a superb card that is ideal for the collector who wants an attractive 1933 Goudey #181 Ruth card, but is not interested in spending the many thousands (or even tens of thousands) of dollars an example in high grade would require. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
