1933 R319 Goudey Baseball Wrapper Set (8)

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $928.00

Collection of all eight wrapper variations from the classic 1933 Goudey baseball card issue. Each of these wrappers was used to package the classic 1933 Goudeys, the most famous and popular of all baseball cards of the early 1930s. Different wrappers were used at different times by the Goudey Gum Co. during the 1933 season. Several of these wrapper styles saw very limited use and are extremely scarce, making a complete set of all eight styles particularly difficult to assemble. This is the first complete set of all eight wrappers we have had in years. The colorful wrappers are all very attractive, of course, as they were designed specifically to attract attention to the company's product. The set consists of the following: 1) batter type front - 3 corner. 2) batter type front - 4 corner. 3) batter type front - 3 figure. 4) batter type front - 6 figure. 5) ad type front - 3 corner. 6) ad type front - 4 corner. 7) ad type front - 3 figure. 8) ad type front - 6 figure. Seven of the eight wrappers are in Excellent condition; one is in Very Good condition. This series of wrappers is rarely offered as a complete set, and is highly prized by both prewar baseball-wrapper and card collectors. Total 8 wrappers. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $928.00
