    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 PSA EX-MT 6. As if there was any doubt, Babe Ruth's status in baseball was well expressed with his four appearances in the 1933 Goudey edition. Card #181 pictures the Babe holding his trusty lumber, gazing upward from within a highly detailed portrait. This could easily be a brief, quiet moment for Ruth, sitting on clubhouse steps, watching the current Yankee batter, torn between placing the ball into the left, center or right field stands. This is an eye-catching example. Exhibiting four clean, frosty borders that surround a richly colored portrait offering perfect print registration (always a treat with vintage card), vibrant ink quality, and modest wear to corner tips completes the notable attributes. The reverse offers a nicely struck name and bio in that unmistakable Goudey green ink. Traditional reverse print ghosting (overkill from the sheet placed under this one) is minimal. Graded PSA EX-MT 6. A great card for the hobbyist looking to add a solid Babe Ruth card to their treasured holdings.
