The 1938 Goudey, also commonly referred to as the "Heads-Up" set, is one of the most popular of all 1930s bubble-gum card issues.

Seven cards are Vg-Ex: #241 Gehringer (HOF), 244, 249 Foxx (HOF), 254, 255, 260, and 277 Greenberg (HOF). This is a very carefully assembled, stunning high-grade collection of these 1930s classics, the foundation for a world-class set, with tremendous break value, and literally just a few cards short of completion. The equivalent SMR value for just the twenty-one graded cards alone (not including the twenty-three ungraded cards) is $7,162. From the Charlie Conlon Collection. Total 44 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000+. SOLD FOR $14,100
