One of the most visually-pleasing of all Babe Ruth's cards and the only example of the Babe's four cards in the 1933 Goudey issue drawing his image from a different original source photo.  The "Green Ruth" is notoriously found with centering issues; the presence of creamy, clean borders on all four sides of the card image in and of itself qualifies this example as "well-centered."  The card image is clean and well-registered, the colorful image dark and vibrant, the green background bold and bright.  Corner wear is minimal for the grade, perhaps the finest midgrade example of this card that we have handled.  Ruth's Goudey issues have skyrocketed as of late; this is an extremely strong specimen for the grade.
