1933 R319 Goudey #23 Ki Ki Cuyler PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,525.00
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only one example of this card has ever been graded higher. Extremely high-grade example of #23 Ki Ki Cuyler from the 1933 Goudey set. Hall of Famer Ki Ki Cuyler is captured bat-in-hand against a blue background. Cuyler is one of the most difficult cards in the set to find in high grade. This is no doubt related to the fact that card #23 is a 1933 Goudey first series low-number card, all of which are particularly challenging to find in high grade. This is due to several factors: the inferior stock on which first series low-number 1933 Goudeys are printed, the tendency of low-number cards to gravitate to the top of large piles of cards when put in numerical order (therefore naturally being subjected to more wear), and the fact that the low numbers were issued earliest in the 1933 season, and thus naturally weathered more wear and tear on the playground than the series cards released later in the year. This is an extremely high-grade example of this significant condition rarity. Exceptionally crisp, perfectly clean, with the blue background bold and bright, perfect registry, four sharp corners, well-centered, and with a flawless reverse with bold green lettering. SMR value for the assigned grade is $3,000. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
