Four GOOD 30: #2 Simmons, 9 Cochrane (HOF), 21, and 81. Two FAIR 20: #1 Grove and 54 Greenberg. This is a very sharp-looking, mid-grade partial set, representing a tremendous start towards completing one of the 1930s' most popular issues, with many condition highlights and with most cards appearing far better than suggested by their very respectable, technically accurate grades. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grades is $3,887. Total: 96 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,259
