    Description

    1933 World Wide Gum Babe Ruth #93 PSA NM 7. All four of the Babe Ruth cards from the 1933 Goudey series are among the most prized cards in the hobby. Offered is a magnificent representation of this key card that enjoys some elevated scarcity as it is not the standard US fare but is card #93 from the 1933 World Wide Gum series sold in Canada in 1933. This parallel of one of the hobby's most beloved issues transports us back to the days of the Depression without the unpleasantness of failed banks and bread lines.

    Graded PSA NM 7. This example is equaled by just four others with one rated higher at the top of the PSA population report. For comparison, PSA has reviewed only seventy-three WWG versions while over 1,050 of the US Goudey (#149) counterparts have found their way into a PSA slab. Essentially untouched by the passing of nearly a century, this relic provides spotless and beautifully toned surfaces to go along with mild wear to outer corner tips. Centering quality is beyond expectations and is about as perfect as one could hope for.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $20,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
