    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. Card #53 from the 1933 Goudey Baseball series is the first of four appearances by Babe Ruth. This card is the "yellow" Ruth and is the most coveted and valuable of the four Ruth appearances as it seems to become available less often than the others. Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. Coloring remains rich and deep, unaffected by any soiling, minimally affected by some faint and natural toning. Precise print registration has resulted in a crisp portrait with fine details. Typical modest corner wear for the grade is present and we can see no creases. This is a solid mid-grade copy.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
