Default 1935 Goudey Babe Ruth value question

I have the chance to purchase this 1935 Goudey Babe Ruth. There are only a few of these with equivalent or a higher grade then this ones PSA 5 (mk). I don't mind the mark on the back of the card because o think it honestly adds to the card. What would you pay for this card?

It's really tough to gauge anything from the tiny images...and that's key for any vintage where a grade simply isn't a grade.

From what I can tell, the centering is fairly off on the front, so it doesn't even look too much like a "nice 5" without considering the mark.

Obviously, a PSA 5 with a qualifier is not a PSA 5, so it could range anywhere from $700-900 I'd assume based on the actual card, not the grade.
Talking monkey, yeah, yeah. Came here from the future, ugly sucker, only says "ficus".

With the qualifier that is a $550-600 card imo

Yes, it is all about the look when assessing value for that card. The mark wouldn't bother me with the OPs card. This one is still on it's way into me...

Why did they put blush, mascara, and lipstick on these guys? Looks crazy.
