1933 R319 Goudey #181 Babe Ruth
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $2,937.50
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Beautiful example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards, #181 Ruth with green background from the 1933 Goudey series. This is a very attractive example, bright and clean, with perfect registration, and four square corners. In an extremely desirable condition (at first glance this card appears stronger than Ex), and sharing most important elements in common with examples of a much higher technical grade. The 20/80 top to bottom and 25/75 L/R centering keep this beauty from a higher grade. This is a quality card that is ideal for the collector who wants a beautiful 1933 Goudey #181 Ruth card, but is not interested in spending the many thousands (or even tens of thousands) of dollars a significantly higher-graded example would require. SMR value in assigned grade is $3,650. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
