    1934 R309-1 Goudey Premiums Babe Ruth. This special set of black-and-white cards were printed on heavy cardboard and issued as a premium by the Goudey Gum Company in 1934. The cards measure 5-1/2" x 8.75" and are accented with a gold, picture-frame border and an easel on the back. Offered is the most coveted of the four premiums - Babe Ruth! This scarce premium presents an image of Ruthian proportions. The front is bright and crisp with unidentified residue visible when held at an angle. The back has telltale signed of adhesive removal with paper addition/loss on either sides of the adhesive. "'Babe' Ruth August 12, 1933" is notated in graphite on the reverse for unknown reasons. Premium displays in Good condition, but technically rates as Poor.
