He played a total of 155 games in the national Romanian championships (scoring 100 goals), starting on 10 September 1933 (Venus București – Crișana Oradea 0–1). He won four Romanian Cups in 1937, 1939, 1940, 1941, all with Rapid București.
He debuted in the Hungary national football team (under the name Gyula Barátky) for which he played nine games (no goals scored). In 1933, he started to play for the Romania national football team, for which he played 20 games and scored 13 goals. He appeared in the 1938 World Cup, scoring a goal against Cuba.
After his last game (Oțelul Reșița – RATA Târgu Mureș 5–3), he coached RATA Târgu Mureș for a while and, for a very short term, the Romanian national team.
Stories about his skills are still a source of pride for Rapid București supporters. Hundreds of thousands read Finala se joacă azi ("The final is played today") or Glasul roților de tren ("Voice of the train wheels"), written by Ioan Chirilă, an important Romanian sports writer, in which Baratky plays a central role.
