1938 R323 Goudey "Heads-Up" Complete PSA-Graded Set: #7 PSA Set Registry!

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $11,750

Extremely attractive high-grade complete set of 1938 Goudey "Heads-up," one of the most popular of all 1930s issues, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA, highlighted by numerous Hall of Famers grading EX and EX-MT, and particularly attractive examples of key cards #250 Joe DiMaggio (VG 3) and 264 Bob Feller (EX 5). The average PSA grade is 4.56. This set is listed on the PSA Set Registry under "REA Spring 2010" as the seventh-highest graded set. The PSA grades are as follows: Two NM 7: #260 and 284. One EX-MT+ 6.5: #267. Fifteen EX-MT 6: #242, 245, 246 Lombardi (HOF), 256, 265 Gehringer (HOF), 268, 271, 272, 275, 276, 279, 281 Lopez (HOF), 282 Doerr (HOF), 283, and 286 Medwick (HOF).

Two GOOD 2: #252 and 288 Feller (HOF, autographed in blue Sharpie grading an "8"). Forty of the forty-eight cards in this complete set grade EX 5 or better (two PSA 7, one PSA 6.5, fifteen PSA 6, one PSA 5.5, and twenty-one PSA 5). As is usually the case, vintage cards which are graded in the Ex to Ex-Mt range by PSA are usually extremely attractive cards with a fresh, crisp appearance. That is certainly the case with this complete set. This is a very attractive complete set of one of card collecting's most classic issues, highlighted by what are among the most desirable cards (two of each, with and without cartoon backgrounds) of many of the era's key stars, including Joe DiMaggio, Jimmy Foxx, and Bob Feller. The SMR value for the individual cards is $9,320. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++.
