1933 Goudey Gum Company Near Complete Set (199/240)

Starting Bid - $10,000.00, Sold For - $138,000.00

Stunning high-grade near complete set of 1933 Goudey Gum includes 199 of the 240 cards in the set. The near set is highlighted by an exceptionally strong example of the condition sensitive card #1 Bengough (GAI 8.5 NM-MT+), two Babe Ruths (including #144 GAI 7.5 NM+), both Gehrigs, and countless additional Hall of Famers. The 1933 Goudey set is universally recognized as the single most popular and collected of all 1930s gum issues, and one of the most significant of all pre-war baseball card issues. This near complete set has been graded in its entirety by Global Authentication (with the exception of two cards, #70 and #87, which were already graded and encapsulated by PSA as NM 7). The GAI grades are as follows: One NM-MT+ 8.5: #235.
