    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 PSA NM 7 (OC). Sharp representation of this key card from one of the hobby's most beloved issues. Portraits of the Babe harken us back to the days of the Depression without the unpleasantness of failed banks and bread lines. Essentially untouched by the passing of three quarters of a century, this gorgeous relic provides barely a suggestion of wear and what is there is almost exclusively limited to outer corner tips. The harshest critique we can find is that Ruth's precisely registered image lies just to the right and high of center. The card has been cut taller than factory specs.
