1934 Goudey #61 Lou Gehrig Copyright and Registration Cards (2)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $9,280.00

1934 Goudey copyright submission card and matched copyright registration card for #61 Lou Gehrig. This is one of Gehrig's most popular cards, and is all the more significant being a card of the spokesman for the Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series. The date stamped on the reverse of the copyright submission card records that this card was received in the United States Copyright Office on September 27, 1934. This date of receipt is verified by the accompanying copyright registration card, which also notes that the date of publication of this card was July 3, 1934. It is interesting to see that the "author" of the card (entitled "Lou Gehrig New York Yankees") listed on the copyright registration card is credited to "Lippke & Kruger" as opposed to Lou Gehrig. Though the set was entitled "Lou Gehrig says..." and gave youngsters the impression they were reading prose direct from the pen of the Iron Horse, apparently the reverses of the cards were actually ghostwritten for Gehrig. This same credit is given on all 1934 copyright registration cards. The copyright card has an Excellent appearance. The copyright registration card is in Excellent to Mint condition. Total 2 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $9,280.00
