Description
1933 Sport Kings Babe Ruth #2 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - Pop One, Two Higher. 1933 Sport Kings Babe Ruth #2 PSA NM-MT 8. While the Great Depression remains one of the most painful eras of American history, it was a magical age for American sport, and for the Goudey Gum Company that serves today as that period's most coveted cardboard commemoration. In an era when even a penny trading card was a luxury item beyond the reach of many, the Goudey company bravely engineered a new era in the collecting hobby, launching the Bubble Gum Age with some of the most beautiful cards ever printed. The Sport Kings issue was a particularly risky endeavor, as multi-sport issues had largely fallen out of favor after the late 19th century. And while this set ably silenced the doubters, the baseball entries remain the most coveted components of the set, none more so than the greatest name in the history of the sport, who appears here in startlingly fine condition. Trailing only the great Ty Cobb as the second card in the set of forty-eight, Babe Ruth shows hardly a hint of the eighty-three years since he clubbed the first home run in All-Star Game history. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Population one, with two rated higher from a total pop of just under 500 submissions. Ruth's endearing portrait resonates with rich, saturated colors and sharp registration. The surprisingly clean surfaces and near-perfect centering are bonuses which give this example uncompromising eye appeal to match the physical appeal. A marvelous example of one of the hobby's most essential Ruth card collectibles. HID03101062020 © 2020 Heritage Auctions | All Rights Reserved
