    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 PSA NM-MT 8 (OC). A key card from one of the hobby's most beloved issues transports us back to the days of the Depression without the unpleasantness of failed banks and bread lines. Essentially unbothered by the passing of three quarters of a century, this quality relic provides close to problem-free surfaces (there is a little roughness to the front right border) to go along with hardly any wear to note affecting outer corner tips. The harshest critique we can find is that Ruth's precisely registered image lies low of center, thus the PSA qualifier. For many whose card concentration tends toward the golden age of the bubble gum era, they understand that this is to be considered a noteworthy auction offering. Off the almost 700 submissions to PSA, only twenty-five have earned the NM-MT of higher grade level, qualified or not. With the truly aesthetics only condition factor of centering aside, this card is one of the top 4% finest examples known.
