The most widely sought after baseball cardboard artifact is a portrayal of baseball’s greatest player ever, the legendary Babe Ruth. The ‘Sultan of Swat’s” significance to the game itself cannot be over emphasized, with his mighty home runs revolutionizing the game. Babe Ruth’s popularity came at a point in time after the “Black Sox Scandal” when the game desperately required a monumental favorable turnaround. It is the general consensus of baseball historians that Babe Ruth saved the game during this “dark” period, and he continued on with his record breaking feats to become the greatest player of all-time. Other than a few of his first Boston Red Sox issues, no card could more effectively represent the unparalleled “Bambino” than a 1933 Goudey Gum card. This prestigious gum company transformed the card market by inserting baseball players in gum packs as opposed to manufacturers packaging cards with their candy and tobacco products. Unquestionably, Goudey choose the right player to produce four separate subjects, with the desirable Babe Ruth #181 “green background” Goudey card offered here in a breathtaking PSA 8/oc holder.
