    Description

    1933 Sport Kings Babe Ruth #2 PSA NM 7. The sales success of the 1933 Goudey baseball series must have been an instant phenomenon, as the same year Goudey, under their "Sport Kings" brand, produced a 48-card classic that featured only the greatest of the great from a multitude of sporting endeavors. Although only one-fifth the size of the Goudey baseball issue, Sport Kings are today recognized as one of the most popular and significant sets of the early-1930's era. With a roster that doesn't have one "common" athlete, the set's appeal even eight decades later comes as no surprise. Names like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, Walter Hagen, Bill Tilden, Jack Dempsey, Gene Tunney, Eddie Shore, Duke Kahanamoku, Johnny Weissmuller, Gene Sarazen, Carl Hubbell, Howie Morenz, Knute Rockne, Bobby Jones, Max Baer and Babe Didrikson and more are all honored as "Kings" of their craft. Every champion's portrait shares the same gorgeous artistic sensibilities, allowing this issue to rank as the most popular of all multi-sport card promotions. Graded PSA NM 7.

    Graded PSA NM 7. What do you need to know about this card? Why does it look so new? It is simply stunning and doesn't seem to have aged or even handled at all for almost a century now. Obviously uncirculated and brand new in all regards, even under magnification, two corners show mere hints of wear the very outer tips, the other two are "minty." This card and the other Babe (Didrickson) are truly the "Black Swamp" equivalent of Sport Kings cards. You will find others with a higher technical grade but not one that looks like they came fresh out of the pack.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
