    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. One of baseball card collecting's "Big Three," the 1933 Goudey set is rightfully considered a consummate masterpiece that saw fit to honor Babe Ruth on no fewer than four cards. The very essence of the Depression-era game, all found within a single three-inch tall piece of cardboard. Certainly there was none more recognizable than Babe Ruth striking his classic batting pose. Offered is a solid mid-grade copy with surprisingly nice centering for a '33 Goudey. There is some corner and edge wear and edge toning, graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5 with close to perfect centering as you'll find on a '33 Goudey. This is the set's most recognizable card with no major flaws.
