Description



Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. As "the face" of the inaugural Big League Chewing Gum product from the Goudey Gum Company of Boston, George Herman (Babe) Ruth was placed not once, but on four different occasions throughout the 240-card set. A hero to millions, gum cards of "The Bambino" were highly prized (and well handled) by his young admirers. The offered 1933 Goudey Baseball #181 Babe Ruth escaped the fate of so many of his peers as this sturdy cardboard slab is entirely crease-free!  The illustration which depicts the home run hero resting on his bat is bright with precise uniform and facial detailing. The reverse which touts Ruth as "one of the keenest students of baseball" is problem-free. A fine example that is a "perfect fit" for those pursing the 1933 Goudey Baseball edition.
