A PSA 8 Babe Ruth card is headed for an apparently prosperous new home after Mile High Card Company’s auction.
So nice it looks like a reprint…but rest assured, it’s the real deal. A 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth graded PSA 8 attracted lots of attention in the September 21 Mile High Card Company auction.
Final price was $15,703.94 but add on the 17.5% buyer’s premium and the final tally is $18,452.13.
That price nearly doubled the next highest price achieved in the auction, which was for a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle graded PSA 4. It closed at $9914.93 with the premium.
There were some pieces of memorabilia as well, including a 1950s Ted Williams game-used bat which was nailed down for $9468.88 and a signed Babe Ruth photo, authenticated, for $3017.12.
