1933-1934 Four-On-One Exhibits Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig PSA VG-EX 4 Collection (3 cards)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,350.00

Impressive collection of three rare prewar Exhibit cards, dating from 1933 and 1934, representing two different issues, all featuring Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and/or Lou Gehrig (two feature both), all graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. The PSA-assigned grades are very respectable but each card is crease-free and actually looks stronger to us. This is a high-grade group for Four-On-One Exhibits. All three present as Ex or better. In 1929 the Exhibit Supply Co. of Chicago changed the design of its cards and began issuing Four-On-One Exhibits featuring four different players per card, all from the same team. This unique design lasted for nine years until 1938. This collection offers two different and one duplicate (color variation) from the 1933 and 1934 series. 1) 1933 Four-On-One Exhibit: Ruth/Pennock/Lazzeri/Dickey (VG-EX 4). Only example graded at any level by PSA. This is the key card of the set and features orange-tinted photos of Yankee standouts Babe Ruth, Herb Pennock, Tony Lazzeri, and Bill Dickey. 2-3) 1934 Four-On-One Exhibit: Ruth/Gomez/Gehrig/Dickey (both VG-EX 4). Two crisp, clean examples of the key card to the 1934 Four-On-One Exhibit card set featuring one with blue tint and one with green tint portraits of Yankee greats Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Vernon Gomez, and Bill Dickey, respectively. This is one of the few Four-On-One Exhibits (along with the 1933 in this collection) to feature four Hall of Famers. This is a very impressive, crisp, clean, conservatively graded collection of three key Exhibits. These cards naturally each have tremendous eye appeal; together, they look even more impressive. These Four-On-One Exhibits present an extraordinary value for quality Ruth and Gehrig cards from the 1930s. This is a very attractive collection of three high-quality cards featuring Babe Ruth (and including two featuring Lou Gehrig) from two different rare Exhibit issues. Total 3 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
