    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The second great bubble gum issue in baseball card history, a set that joins the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps Baseball sets fondly dubbed "The Big Three" is the Goudey series from 1933. It was the largest set of cards issued in years and it should be no surprise Babe Ruth would be honored with no fewer than four cards, an honor worthy of the man who called his shot in the '32 Series which, at the time, was just six or seven months prior.

    Card #53 is called the "Yellow Background" Ruth for obvious reasons. It is also the most challenging of the four Ruth appearances. The offered example is graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. A well-preserved example with the added bonus of great eye appeal. Overall, the card is clean with just minor signs of handling.
