1938 Goudey "Heads-Up" #274 Joe DiMaggio

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,937.50

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Very attractive high-grade example of #274 Joe DiMaggio, the key card of the 1938 Goudey "Heads-Up" series. DiMaggio is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Joe DiMaggio cards, and of all 1930s bubble-gum cards. This example is bright and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, perfect registration, and four square corners with just a hint of wear. There is a single small surface wrinkle in the lower right corner (barely detectable), a single light horizontal printline (center, running across less than half the card), and a light scuff along the top left edge of the reverse. Centered 20/80 left to right. Technically in Vg-Ex condition, this is a card which aside from the noted flaws displays as Excellent. This is a very impressive-looking, technically medium-grade example of one of card collecting’s most classic cards, in a very desirable, relatively affordable grade. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
