    Description

    1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 PSA NM-MT 8. Magnificent representation of this key card from 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. Essentially untouched by the passing of eight decades, this gorgeous relic provides marvelous spotless surfaces to go along with barely a suggestion of wear to outer corner tips. The harshest critique we can find is that Ruth's precisely registered image lies just to the left of center.

    To give the clearest indication of the superiority of this specimen, we must note that this PSA NM-MT 8 example is bested only by a pair of others. The only possible improvement could be in centering. We find no faults in the surfaces, colors and corners. Even under magnification, mere hints of wear are faintly detected at the very outer tips. For many whose card concentration tends toward the golden age of the bubble gum era, this will be considered the most noteworthy auction offering.
