1933 Goudey #144 Babe Ruth, beautifully signed by Ruth in black fountain pen across his image. Dual-graded by PSA/DNA, with the signature receiving a designation of NM 7 and the card VG 3 (MC). This is one of only seven signed examples of this card listed in the PSA Population Report. It is the only one graded at this level, with just three graded higher. Ruth's signature is particularly striking due to the outstanding contrast offered by the light background of the card. The card displays four fairly sharp corners with slight touches and white borders. The colors are rich and the edges are crisp and smooth. The reverse is clean and bright with no staining or defects. A very slight bleed through of the red big league chewing gum bottom plate is evident. Besides the near lack of a right border, hence the (MC) designation, the card displays beautifully and is one of the finest signed examples we have seen.
