PWCC Certified - Eye Appeal Rating: Top 30%

Arguably the most desired trading card from the depression era and easily the most wanted of Ruth's '33 Goudey quartet. The #53 or Yellow Ruth is the most challenging of the four often being affected by centering shifts and toning to the problematic yellow backdrop. Offered here is a beautiful PSA 5 example of the elite gum card, boasting tremendous overall eye appeal. Wonderfully framed with only a modest top to bottom shift present. The yellow back drop really pops, the print is superb and the clarity is precise. Free of wrinkles with only modest wear to the four corner tips being all that prevents a higher assessment. Ruth is an immortal putting up incredible stats throughout his career and calling his shot in the '32 series; likely six or seven months before the production of this trading card. An all-around elite specimen which sets the tone for what a rock-solid PSA 5 can offer. Deserving of investment. Please see the video highlight for more details on this offering. One of over 24,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 12th Auction of 2020. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
