1933 R319 Goudey Complete Set of 239 (No #106 Lajoie)

Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $29,000.00

15% Ex, 72% range from Vg-Ex to Vg-Ex/Ex, 7% Vg, 6% Gd (includes a single card in fair). Put together card by card over a period of years, with an emphasis on overall eye appeal, this set is particularly striking for the care of its assembly, with all cards free of creases. The vast majority of cards in the set have been downgraded from Excellent to the Vg-Ex to Vg-Ex/Ex range primarily due to corner wear. This is a very attractive, consistent, and carefully assembled set, in an extremely desirable but still relatively affordable grade. The 1933 Goudey set is the first major gum card set of the 1930s and is universally recognized as the most popular and significant set of the era. Highlighted by four Babe Ruths and two Lou Gehrigs, the set includes all the stars of the 1930s, including an incredible sixty Hall of Famers (all of which are graded individually below). We have selected fourteen cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA, including all four Babe Ruth cards and both Lou Gehrig cards. Keys: #1 Bengough (G-Vg), 2 Vance (Vg), 5 Herman (Vg), 7 Lyons (Vg), 19 Dickey (Vg/Vg-Ex), 20 Terry (Vg-Ex), 22 Traynor (Gd), 23 Cuyler (Vg/Vg-Ex), 25 Waner (Vg-Ex), 29 Foxx (PSA EX 5), 31 Lazzeri (Vg/Vg-Ex), 35 Simmons (Vg/Vg-Ex), 42 Collins (Vg-Ex), 44 Bottomley (Vg), 47 Manush (Vg-Ex), 49 Frisch (Vg-Ex), 53 Ruth (PSA VG 3), 56 Ruffing (Vg/Vg-Ex), 60 Hoyt (Vg/Vg-Ex), 63 Cronin (Ex), 64 Grimes (Vg-Ex/Ex), 73 Haines (Vg-Ex/Ex), 74 Rixey (Vg-Ex/Ex), 76 Cochrane (Vg due to tiny surface chip, otherwise Vg-Ex), 79 Faber (Vg-Ex/Ex), 89 Speaker (Good), 92 Gehrig (PSA EX 5), 102 Jackson (Vg-Ex/Ex), 103 Coombs (Vg-Ex), 107 Manush (Vg-Ex/Ex), 109 Cronin (possible slight trim right border, Ex appearance), 110 Goslin (Gd), 117 Maranville (Vg-Ex), 119 Hornsby (PSA EX 5), 125 Terry (75/25 T/B, otherwise Ex), 127 Ott (Vg), 128 Klein (Vg/Vg-Ex), 133 Lindstrom (Vg-Ex), 134 Rice (PSA VG-EX 4), 138 Pennock (Vg-Ex/Ex), 144 Ruth (PSA EX 5), 147 Durocher (Vg-Ex), 149 Ruth (PSA VG-EX 4), 154 Foxx (PSA VG-EX 4), 158 Berg (Vg-Ex), 160 Gehrig (PSA EX 5), 164 Waner (Vg-Ex), 168 Goslin (PSA VG-EX 4), 181 Ruth (PSA VG-EX 4), 188 Hornsby (Vg-Ex/Ex), 189 Cronin (PSA EX-MT 6), 194 Averill (90/10 L/R, otherwise Ex), 202 Hartnett (10/90 L/R, otherwise Ex), 207 Ott (Vg), 211 Wilson (Vg-Ex), 216 Gomez (Vg/Vg-Ex), 220 Grove (20/80 L/R and T/B, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), 222 Gehringer (Vg-Ex), 223 Dean (Vg/Vg-Ex), 230 Hubbell (Vg), 234 Hubbell (PSA EX 5), and 240 Schumacher (PSA Ex 5). In a world where a single high-grade 1933 Goudey key card can sell for more than this entire set, a carefully assembled mid-grade set such as this is rarely offered, and is widely appreciated for the outstanding value it represents. Total 239 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$15,000. SOLD FOR $29,000.00
