Description1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 PSA NM-MT 8. While the Great Depression remains one of the most painful eras of American history, it was a magical age for American sport, and for the Goudey Gum Company that reigns today as sponsor of that period's most coveted cardboard commemorations. In an era when even a penny trading card was a luxury item beyond the reach of many, the Goudey company bravely engineered a new era in the collecting hobby, launching the Bubble Gum Age with some of the most beautiful cards ever printed.
The now landmark issue was actually a risky endeavor, as its size and the national economic downturn could have spelled disaster. Obviously, the set silenced the doubters. Today the four cards featuring Babe Ruth, remain the most coveted components of the set, not a surprise considering Ruth ranks as the greatest name in the history of the sport. Picking your favorite is like picking your favorite Beatle.
Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Bright colors, sharp registration and problem-free surfaces give this example attention grabbing eye appeal. The four sharp corners reveal slight wear the very outer tips only under magnification. A marvelous example of one of the hobby's most essential Ruth variations.
