(LOT 22)
1933 Goudey #53 Babe Ruth SGC 3 VG

YELLOW RUTH!!! Offered is one of the four 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth cards, considered as one of the most widely desired Bambino cards in existence. The striking yellow background with Ruth in follow-thru still shows bright bold colors and a minor toned reverse accounting for its SGC 3 VG rating. And while this is no match for the recent PSA MINT 9 example that sold for a record-breaking $4.2 million in the Newman Collection Auction, this remains the most coveted of the four Ruth subjects issued in the 1933 Goudey set. It is no secret that all Yellow Goudey Ruths are currently achieving staggering price tags, with an SGC 5 reflecting an unfathomable $90K sale earlier this year. Even low-grade specimens are now fetching five-figures plus, substantiating why any vintage collector would want too capture this superb VG offering.

MIN BID $3,000
