Very attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards, #53 with yellow background from the 1933 Goudey series. The "yellow background" pose of Babe Ruth is perhaps his most sought-after card in the 1933 Goudey set. This example is bright and crisp, with light wear to the corners, virtually perfect registration (which can sometimes be a problem with this particular card), and excellent centering. No creases. The back has an ink mark in the upper left, otherwise is clean with bold green print set against an off-white background. Encapsulated by PSA as "Authentic" due to evidence of alteration, we believe that slight trims to the top and bottom edges are the only alterations to this example. This card presents a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series at a small fraction of the cost of a higher-grade example. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
