1934 R320 Goudey #61 Lou Gehrig SGC EX 5

Sold For: $10,200
Year: 1934
Auction: 2023 June
Lot #: 2
Auction: Prewar Baseball - 1930s and 1940s Cards
Graded EX 5 by SGC. Very attractive example of this classic Lou Gehrig card, one of the most popular of all his cards and all 1930s bubble-gum cards. The 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series features an additional Gehrig portrait on the front and words by him on the reverse (in the case of this card, an invitation to join Goudey's Knot Hole League of America club and to personally write him with questions about the game, which no doubt kept Christy Walsh or someone at Goudey very busy). This example has vibrant colors, a strong image, excellent centering, and light corner wear. Boldly printed reverse. A few spots of surface wear in the upper-left quadrant factor into the assigned grade. A strong example of one of Gehrig's most desirable cards that is available for a fraction of the price that a higher-grade example would command. Opening Bid $10.
