Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 PSA EX-MT 6. With shortness of breath, if one is lucky enough to rummage through grand-father's attic one may find a long forgotten and now rediscovered box of childhood baseball treasures there is likely a selection of vintage baseball cards that may have made the depression-era more bearable. There may be an autographed piece of paper or two and if your truly blessed there will be a card featuring the image of baseball royalty in the form of George Herman "Babe" Ruth. The first great bubble gum issue in baseball card history, a set that joins the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps Baseball in a hobby triumvirate fondly dubbed "The Big Three" is the Goudey series from 1933. Babe Ruth would be honored with no less than four cards, a honor worthy of the man who called his shot in the '32 series which at the time was just six or seven months prior.

    The most challenging of the four is also the first to see public circulation - card #53 or the "Yellow Background" Ruth. The offered example is Graded PSA EX-MT 6. Surfaces are problem-free, the yellow background is a rich golden hue. A well-preserved example.
