Lot #: 8
Auction: Featured
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only three examples graded higher by PSA out of 960 cards evaluated to date. Extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the most popular Lou Gehrig cards, it is recognized as one of the most classic of all 1930s bubble-gum cards. The 1934 Goudey #37 features Gehrig's portrait and is perhaps the finest likeness of him to ever appear on any card. Gehrig was the spokesman for the 1934 Goudey set, appearing on wrappers, in advertisements, and on posters for the gum company. The 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series features an additional Gehrig portrait on the front and words by him on the reverse. It is easy to see why many consider this to be the ultimate Lou Gehrig card. This is a stunning example. Bright and clean, front and back, with perfect colors, flawless registration, and four sharp corners with just a hint of wear at the very tips. Centered very slightly to the right. The reverse of the card is also extremely clean with bold green text. Striking example of one of Gehrig's most desirable cards, and the key card from this classic 1930s bubble-gum card series. Reserve $25,000.
