Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Beautiful example of one of Babe Ruth’s most famous and classic cards: #149 with red background from the 1933 Goudey series. This is a magnificent and striking example, bright and clean, and with virtually perfect registration (such a crisp image is rare to find with this particular card) and centering slightly toward the bottom. Light corner wear (a little more on the bottom right) and a clean, boldly printed reverse. There is a light surface indentation on the bottom part of Ruth's jersey and minor surface imperfections over the bottom right corner noted for accuracy. In an extremely desirable condition, this is an ideal card for the collector who wants an exceptional 1933 Goudey #149 Babe Ruth, but who is not interested in spending the tens of thousands of dollars an example in a significantly higher-grade might cost. Reserve $2,500.
