1939 R303-B Goudey Premium Joe DiMaggio - SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,175

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded R303-B black-and-white example of one of DiMaggio's most striking and overlooked cards. Issued in 1939 by Goudey Gum, and catalogued R303-B in the ACC, this large format (4-3/4 x 7-3/8 inches) set is printed on thin stock and was issued both in black-and-white, as well as sepia. Offered is an exceptional ultra high-grade black-and-white example of Joe DiMaggio, the key card from the set. R303s are rarely found in such high grade. Because these premium cards are printed on thin stock, they are very susceptible to minor faults, especially creases. This is a rare high-grade R303-B example that happens to be the key card in the set. Bright and crisp, with a flawless surface, no creases, four square corners, and an outstanding image. The card features playing tips on the reverse. This is an outstanding and extremely high grade example of a very early and significant DiMaggio card, and his last issued by the legendary Goudey Gum Company. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,175
