#8035 - 1933 Sport Kings #2 Babe Ruth - SGC NM/MT 8 Estimate: $15,000+

King of Kings—graded by SGC NM/MT 8

Graded by SGC NM/MT 8. In a sport card set known as "Sport Kings" there would be no better representative than Babe Ruth. The Ruth within the 1933 Sport Kings set is clearly the most popular card, with this offered specimen one of the top graded examples. Slightly off center to the left, the card boasts three sharp corners, with a light touch to the lower left. Bright and fresh in appearance, the bold color accentuates the tight registration of the image.

This iconic card shows the 'Home Run King' in a bust-length pose against a green background. Released by the Goudey Gum Co. in 1933, the 'Sport Kings' set features champions from a broad range of sports, including baseball, football, hockey, skiing, swimming, aviation, golf, billiards, cycling, and wrestling; Ruth, along with Ty Cobb and Carl Hubbell, came to represent America's national pastime in the set. The Ruth card is the most coveted of the group, and is comparable in difficulty to Ruth's #149 card in the Goudey set of the same year. This NM/MT blazer is one of the most sought-after cards of the 'Sultan of Swat.'
