Description

    1934 World Wide Gum Babe Ruth #28 SGC 80 EX/NM 6 - Pop Two, None Higher. The "Yellow Background" Ruth or card #53 from the 1933 Goudey series is among the set's prized quartet of Babe Ruth entries for its design and elevated scarcity. That same card is card #28 in the World Wide Gum series from 1934. The first forty-eight cards from this gorgeous set differ from the design of the 1933 Goudey only in the bilingual text on the reverse. Offered is a truly beautiful card example that has been graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The corners show very modest wear, surfaces are clean and Ruth's portrait is a little off-center but is also blemish-free, vibrant and eye catching. One of two cards at the EX/NM level with none rated higher.
