Iconic image of the most famous player of all time, from one of the most widely-collected baseball card sets ever issued.  Despite being double-printed in the 1933 Goudey set, card #144 of Ruth remains in high demand among collectors, featuring a full-body image of the Sultan of Swat, completing his swing - a pose featured in many iconic photos of Ruth throughout the years.  

Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC, this card has the appearance of a VG/EX card at the very least, save for the unfortunate remnants of an erased pencil marking of the letters "OF" on the upper left corner of the reverse, a previous owner's attempt at identifying Ruth's position as outfielder.  The reverse also reveals a corner crease at the upper left, visible on the front but not as dramatically due to the card's strong color.

Cards of Babe Ruth are always in high demand among collectors.  This example, gorgeous for the grade, presents an outstanding opportunity for any collector to own one of the hobby's classic cards.
