Charalambos "Babis" - or "Lambis" - Serafeidis was a Greek football forward of the early post-World War II era.

Serafeidis was born in 1929. Like his younger brother Stelios, Babis first played for Aegaleo. He then transferred to Apollon Athens, AEK (1953) and back to Apollon Athens until 1962 when he retired. He was known for the wicked "english" he could put in his shot that was many-a-keeper's nightmare.

Serafeidis was capped 12 times in his career by the National Football Team of Greece scoring 3 goals. His 3 goals won games against Turkey (May 16, 1952) and Israel (April 30, 1960).

After his playing days were over, Serafeidis coached Aegaleo in 1980.

Serafeidis died on August 20, 2003.
