    Description

    1934 World Wide Gum Babe Ruth #28 PSA EX 5. The "Yellow Background" Ruth or card #53 from the 1933 Goudey series is among the set's prized quartet of Babe Ruth entries for its design and elevated scarcity. That same card is card #28 in the World Wide Gum series from 1934. The first forty-eight cards from this gorgeous set differ from the design of the 1933 Goudey only in the bilingual text on the reverse. Offered is a solid example that has been graded PSA EX 5. The corners show very modest wear, surfaces are clean and Ruth's off-centered portrait is blemish-free and vibrant. One of nine cards at the EX level with three rated higher.
