Of the quartet of Babe Ruth cards that highlight the legendary 1933 Goudey series, the issue of #144 is the only one that features Ruth in a full-body pose, the other three using portraits of "The Sultan of Swat" surrounded by red, green and yellow backdrops. The featured example is graded PSA 4.5, although with the bright image, neatly squared corners and near perfect centering, it makes you wonder why this one isn't EX or EX/NM. The image of Ruth post-swing is sharp and enhanced by a particularly bright canvas of myriad colors that makes the issue so popular with the vintage collector. If you've wanted to add a Goudey Ruth to your collection and the PSA 4.5 grade is where your price point lies, this is a very pleasing example with no glaring weaknesses.
