Latest BGS order received; Babe Ruth rookie has come home

I took advantage of the April grading special offered by Beckett Grading Services, which allowed for 20-day service at $7 per vintage card.  I sent seven cards that needed to be slabbed in BGS cases for my collection.

A few of these were previously slabbed by other companies, but I just wanted them in BGS cases, which are my favorite.  Along the way, I got a few grade bumps (Cy Young), and some nice returns on some raw cards (Ron Santo and Hoyt Wilhelm).

But the grand daddy of them all is the 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth, which previously was encapsulated by SGC.  No grade bump there, but it was nice to re-assure me that it was authentic.  It might be considered “poor” but it looks a hell of a lot better than a lot of 1s I’ve seen.  The issue?  Some paper loss on the back bottom corners and a tiny pinhole on the left border.
