Listing Details

One of the ultimate baseball cards, this is a revered rarity from one of the most popular baseball card sets ever produced. Forever beloved by collectors, the 1933 Goudey set was one of the very first to be issued with gum and its colorful design and quality stock has made it a bedrock piece to all 1930s card collections. Deceptively not issued in 1933 in order to trick youngsters into buying endless numbers of packs to complete the set, all examples that trade were the result of very enterprising young collectors that wrote to the Goudey company to complain and the card was printed with the 1934 Goudey set. There was a time when this traded on par or higher than a T206 Plank, perhaps these are very undervalued right now. The offered card is a gorgeous 3; it is perfectly centered with rich color and clean borders. The corners come to points, the back could not be any cleaner. Subtle creasing that does not crack the paper in the center of the card keeps this at a 3. We hardly ever see these with 1933 Goudey sets, who wants to instantly elevate the stature of their collection by adding one of the hobby’s most important and truly classic rarities to their collection? Purchased by our consignor (now sadly deceased) decades ago, this is a wonderful card.
