    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. The first line of his cardback biography summarizes the legendary ballplayer's greatness. "Home run king of the big leagues." As tribute to his sovereignty, Ruth's likeness was featured on four different 1933 Goudey cards. It would be nearly impossible to find a finer specimen, as only one of the 126 reviewed by SGC has received a higher mark. Centering is above the norm; with four strong corners, a clean front and back, and colors that radiate. A few stray printing lines are all that separate this card from even a higher grade.
