    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 SGC 60 EX 5. The essence of the Depression-era game, distilled into a single three-inch tall piece of card stock and printer's ink. The details of the offering are little more than a long list of superlatives, as the set and the player it pictures rank at the pinnacle of the hobby. Joining the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps issues to form the baseball card collecting's "Big Three," the 1933 Goudey set is rightfully considered a consummate masterpiece, with gorgeous portraiture capturing many of the greatest names of the pre-war era. And certainly there was none greater than Babe Ruth, who strikes his classic batting pose here on what may be the set's most recognizable card. Rich colors and problem free surfaces bring the Babe to life almost three-quarters of a century after issue. Minor corner touches and a slight centering shift are all we can report which would account for the technical assessment.
