Description1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. It would be easy to go into a lengthy essay about the achievements of Babe Ruth but the first line on the reverse says it all, "Home run king of the big leagues." As a tribute to his sovereignty, Ruth's likeness was featured no less than four times in the 1933 Goudey series, more times than any other player. Considering the handling a cherished memento like this would endure, this example has survived very nicely. Among the company's prized quartet of Babe Ruth entries, this "Red Background" Ruth conveys the Bambino's joy in the game to the greatest extent, taking a mighty swing of his most prized possession.
Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4. Babe Ruth cards are one of the hobby's fondest gifts to its ardent devotees. This example displays modest amounts of wear at corner tips and a reasonable discrepancy in centering. A very nice card with rich colors.
