Graded POOR 1 by PSA (submitted by REA). This card comes from an original-owner collection from New England consigned by the family. Modestly graded 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, without a doubt, his most difficult to obtain and sought-after card in the 1933 Goudey set. The obvious flaws include creasing, moderate corner wear, and spots of surface wear. Despite these flaws, this example displays bright colors and a crisp image of Ruth. An excellent opportunity to acquire one of Babe Ruth's most classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series and one of card collecting's iconic cards at a fraction of the cost of a higher-graded example. Reserve $1,000.
