1935 R332 Schutter-Johnson Candy Lou Gehrig & Al Simmons (2)
Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $348.00
Collection of two cards, both graded by SGC, from the 1935 Schutter-Johnson set: #1 Al Simmons (VG 40) and #20 Lou Gehrig (GOOD 30). This unusual set is entitled "Major League Secrets." The reverse of each card in the series features the player's sage advice on some aspect of the game, with the card's captioned illustration on the front relating to this advice. The design and very primitive illustrations of this rare issue give it a distinctive character and charm. The set was illustrated by former Major Leaguer Al Demaree, who also did the artwork to R304 "Demaree Diecuts," and the cartoon bodies of players in the 1938 Goudey "Heads Up" series. Both cards have some light creasing and corner wear but overall have a very strong visual appeal, far better than suggested by their assigned grades. Total 2 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $348.00
