    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 PSA EX-MT 6. The first great bubble gum issue in baseball card history--a set that joins the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps Baseball in a hobby triumvirate fondly dubbed "The Big Three"--is the Goudey series from 1933. Babe Ruth would be honored with no fewer than four cards, a honor worthy of the man who called his shot in the '32 Series, which, at the time, was just six or seven months prior.

    The most challenging of the four is also the first to see public circulation - card #53 or the "Yellow Background" Ruth. Graded PSA EX-MT 6. Colors remain rich and very nicely saturated. All are complimented by the clean, white albeit uneven frame. A well-preserved example.
