    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. Among the company's prized quartet of Babe Ruth entries, this "Yellow Background" 1933 Goudey card effectively conveys the Bambino's joy in the game to the greatest extent. Holding and swinging the bat - while allowing just the beginnings of a smile - marvelously summarize his life's work, and the portrayal quietly affirms the satisfaction he found in all of its elements. The offered card has been graded SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. There is modest wear at corner tips and edge roughness along the left border. Graphics are marginally affected by some toning and they are nicely well centered. A nice mid-grade example of the toughest of the Ruth Goudey quartet.
