Graded NM 7 by PSA. Exceptional high-grade example of the ideal classic Babe Ruth bubble-gum card, the #144 Babe Ruth from the 1933 R319 Goudey set, featuring the Babe in his classic follow-through batting-swing pose. Goudey must also have realized this is a classic pose as, of all the cards in the set, this is the card the company chose to double print when replacing missing card #106 during production. This continues to be one of Ruth's most popular and recognizable baseball cards. Because of being double-printed (there were exactly twice as many Ruth #144s printed as any other card in the same series), this card also represents the best value among the four Ruth cards in the 1933 Goudey set. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with vibrant colors, and centered just a hint to the right. The corners show the slightest touch of wear but remain strong. The reverse is also clean with bold green printing. This is an impressive high-grade example of one of Babe Ruth's classic cards from the popular 1933 Goudey Gum series. Reserve $25,000.
