    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. The first line of his cardback biography summarizes the legendary ballplayer's greatness: "Home run king of the big leagues." As tribute to his sovereignty, Ruth's likeness was featured on four different 1933 Goudey cards, the most of any player. This number 149 "red background" is arguably the scarcest and most widely pursued of the universally coveted quartet, and the offered card is a great representation of its type. A beautiful red background card having only the slightest of corner wear. The image is clean as is the reverse with colors that radiate.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
