Sports Memorabilia

Ruth, George Herman ("Babe") | An unsurpassed example of the Sultan of Babe Ruth cards
T he year 1933 was a landmark for the Goudey Gum Co., the first in which they inserted baseball cards with their product. The popularity of the card series was such that it made Goudey the number one distributor of gum in the world. Of the four different cards of Babe Ruth offered within the set, this full body pose is the most visually impressive; PSA describes it as "arguably his most important" card. Only three other examples of the 1933 Goudy #144 Babe Ruth have earned an equal grade, and none have been graded higher.
