    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 SGC Authentic. Babe Ruth's status in baseball was well conveyed with his four appearances in the R319 Goudey edition from 1933. Card #181 pictures the Babe holding his trusty lumber, gazing upward from within a highly detailed portrait. This is an eye-catching copy of one of the hobby's more desirable Ruth collectibles. Encapsulated SGC Authentic for being partially trimmed along a segment of two edges. Colors and remained vivid and surfaces are for the most part problem free, there are a couple small areas of wear. The borders are clean and white and perfectly compliment a striking image that offers close to perfectly centering and print registration. There is varying amounts of wear to corner tips. The reverse offers a nicely struck print in that unmistakable Goudey green ink and just a mild level of the traditional reverse print ghosting (overkill from the sheet placed under this one).
