    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. 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. Offered is a solid mid-grade copy of card #149 otherwise known as the "Red Background" Ruth. Strong mid-grade example with no creases. Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5.
