    Description

    1933 Goudey Sports Kings Babe Ruth #2 PSA NM-MT 8. The title of this Goudey issue sums it up nicely as Ruth is certainly considered to be the king of baseball. The "Sultan of Swat" was at the height of his popularity when the issue was released in 1933 and this beauty doesn't seem to have aged very much since. The great Bambino stands head and shoulders over his contemporary Titans of sport, like Ty Cobb, Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, Eddie Shore, etc. This beautiful example was blessed with being well centered, vibrant colors and precise registration. The left and right borders appear even. If we have to criticize, all we can find is some slight wear at the corner tips but even the print ghosting on the reverse associated with this issue is at a minimum. Currently, there are twenty-one recorded at the PSA NM-MT 8 level and one can only guess how many are resubmissions. Only a hard to believe trio have been graded higher.
