1935 R321 Goudey "4 in 1" Near-Complete Set (28 of 36)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,880

Outstanding near-complete set of R321 Goudey "4 in 1" includes twenty-eight different of the thirty-six cards in the set. Missing only the following eight cards (three HOFers and five commons) for completion: #2, 7, 13 Bonura/Lyons, 17 Cochrane/Gehringer, 18, 25, 27 Cuyler/Grimes/Klein, and 33. This is a very attractive near-complete set of this unusual 1930s Goudey gum-card issue, which is highlighted by twenty Hall of Famers and includes Babe Ruth's last card as a player with the Boston Braves. We have selected eight cards to be graded by SGC. In the following condition composite, cards are identified by the numbers provided in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. SGC Condition Report: One NM 84: #35. Three EX/NM 80: #9 Vance, 11, and 29 R. Ferrell/W. Ferrell. Two EX 60: #23 and 24 Cochrane/Simmons. One VG/EX 50: #20. One VG 40: #16 Ruth/Maranville (a hint of wear on the corners, centered to the right, front has EX appearance but downgarded due to a vertical surface crease visible only on the reverse; this is a great-looking card, unbelievable for VG!). Ungraded keys: #1 Bottomley (Vg/Vg-Ex), 4 Appling (Vg-Ex), 5 Averill (Vg), 6 Ott (Ex), 10 Cronin (Vg), 12 Herman (Ex), 14 Bottomley (Vg-Ex), 19 Waners/Hoyt (Vg), 22 Dean/Frisch (Vg-Ex), 26 Crowder/Goslin (Vg), 28 Dickey/Lazzeri/Ruffing (Vg-Ex), 30 Greenberg (Ex), 31 Foxx (Vg-Ex), 32 Manush (Vg), 34 Jackson/Terry (Vg-Ex), and 36 Traynor (Vg-Ex, condition sensitive last card in set). Of the four remaining cards, three are Ex, one Vg. This is a very sharp-looking mid- to high-grade near-complete set of one of 1930s most unusual and overlooked Goudey issues. The equivalent SMR value for just the eight graded cards (not including the additional twenty ungraded cards) is $1,275. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,880
