1933 Sport Kings #2 Babe Ruth. Graded FR 1.5 by SGC. While nearly all collectors have seen or handled Ruth's four different 1933 Goudey cards, far fewer are as familiar with his other, much scarcer 1933 baseball card issued by Sport Kings Gum. That's too bad, because the 1933 Ruth Sport Kings, which is highly regarded by advanced collectors, is equal to its Goudey counterparts in terms of aesthetic appeal. The colorful illustration pictures a smiling Babe Ruth in uniform set against a muted green background, at the base of which are a number of silhouetted players in action. Ruth, naturally, is one of the key cards in the forty-eight-card set, which featured stars from many different sports.
