(LOT 27)
1933 Sport Kings Gum #2 Babe Ruth SGC 4 VG-EX

VINTAGE RUTH!!! Goudey honored Babe Ruth on two issues in 1933. The first is represented by the Babe's quartet of cards among the company's regular series of baseball cards. The other and much scarcer portrayal is in the offered Sport Kings version. This 1933 Sport Kings in an SGC 4 VG-EX holder has nice color and white borders on fresh stock. Borders are tidy and handling is minimal for this 88-year-old memento. A rarity with most Ruth cards, and an issue that has recently spiralled in value with mid-grade examples now fetching in excess of five-figures. Strong Bambino that would make a fine addition to any esteemed Ruth gathering!!!

MIN BID $2,000
