    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 60 EX 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 within the 1933 Goudey series. Considering the handling a cherished memento like this would endure, this example has survived as a fine representation of its type. A beautiful red background with equal levels of light corner wear. A solid excellent level copy.
