    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 PSA NM 7. Babe Ruth's status in baseball is just part of his importance. His celebrity was matched by few others at the time. Japanese troops, yelled, Death to babe Ruth!" to demoralize troops and this was years after he retired. Card #181 pictures the Babe holding his trusty lumber, gazing upward from within a highly detailed portrait. This could easily be a brief, quiet moment for Ruth, sitting on clubhouse steps, watching the current Yankee batter, torn between placing the ball into the left, center or right field stands. The lack of surrounding elements only adds to the aura that is the "Babe."

    Graded PSA NM 7. The clean, white borders surround an image placed close to perfect centering. That same precision explains the print registration resulting in a portrait of unquestionable sharpness and detail. For the advanced Ruth collector or the condition conscious baseball card fan with the desire to own a piece of history.
