    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181, Signed, PSA/DNA Authentic. One of four remarkable 1933 Goudey cards from the son of a Depression-era newspaper vendor at Fenway Park who made use of his position to build a thoroughly comprehensive assembly of autographs from the period. The bulk of that collection is offered as Lot 81374 in this Signature auction, but these four gum cards will be offered individually. This number 181 card is trimmed of its "Big League Chewing Gum" text at lower edge, but the marvelous portrait remains unaffected. Ruth's autograph is applied in black fountain pen ink, rating a conservative 8/10. Edge and corner wear is apparent on the face, and the back exhibits paper loss as the result of scrapbook removal. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic.
