Description

Produced by the Goudey Gum Company of Boston from 1933 to 1941, the “big league chewing gum” series of baseball players are among the most revered cards in the hobby. The pioneering effort was released in 1933 and is the undisputed king of the “R” designation in collecting interest. This scarcely offered set of (239) cards with nine graded examples (8 PSA, 1 SGC) is widely considered to be complete, as the nearly impossible to locate #106 Lajoie SP was not released to the general public through gum packs. Absolutely loaded with Hall of Fame talent, these depression-era treasures are primarily mid- to off-grade. Highlights include #1 Bengough (FR), #2 Vance (FR), #19 Dickey (VG), #20 Dickey (PSA 4), #22 Traynor (VG), #29 Foxx (FR), #35 Simmons (VG), #44 Bottomley (VG), #49 Frisch (GD), #53 Ruth (PSA 1), #63 Cronin (EX), #64 Grimes (EX), #74 Rixey (EX), #76 Cochrane (VG), #79 Faber (EX), #89 Speaker (FR), #92 Gehrig (PSA 2), #109 Cronin (VG), #119 Hornsby (GD), #127 Ott (SGC 50), #128 Klein (VG), #144 Ruth (PSA 1), #149 Ruth (PSA 2), #154 Foxx (PSA 3), #158 Berg (VG), #160 Gehrig (PSA 3), #168 Goslin (EX-MT), #181 Ruth (PSA 1), #188 Hornsby (GD), #189 Cronin (VG), #197 R. Ferrell (EX-MT), #202 Hartnett (EX), #207 Ott (GD), #216 Gomez (GD), #220 Grove (VG), #223 Dean (GD), #230 Hubbell (VG) and #234 Hubbell (VG). The approximate condition breakdown for the remaining cards is 20% (VG-EX or better), 30% (VG), 25% (GD) and 25% (low-grade). Although a handful of cards have a combination of wear, the overwhelming majority of these colorful relics have wear consistent with their assigned grades. This premier offering contains significant upside potential and affords the advanced collector the opportunity to secure a carefully pieced together set in one shot.
