Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Beautiful and stunning ultra-high-grade example of one of Babe Ruth’s most classic cards, #149 Ruth with red background from the 1933 Goudey series. Only two copies are graded higher (both NM-MT+ 8.5) out of 866 examples graded to date by PSA. This is an exceptional high-grade NM-MT example. Perfect registration. Flawless colors. Sharp corners. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back, and centered very slightly to the left. Small red print spots are visible in the top border, an occurrence that is almost universal to the #149 Ruth card and mentioned only for the sake of accuracy. The green text on the reverse is boldly printed. This is an outstanding world-class example of one Babe Ruth's most important and highly prized baseball cards. Reserve $25,000. Estimate $50,000++.
