The Babe has been flying high for a long time in the hobby, but the past couple of years have seen renewed focus on his cards across all sets and grades.  This SGC 1 is certainly graded accurately but the overall appearance for the grade is quite strong. 1933 Goudeys, with their soft cardboard, are prone to corner rounding and that is clearly the case here on a card that was probably passed around quite a bit in the 30's, no doubt changing hands in trade after trade. The image though, still draws you in and the colors, especially the yellow, are still there.  The reverse is quite readable, with an unobtrusive "15" lightly penciled among the text. This example presents a great opportunity for the value collector to add an iconic card to their collection.
