1934 R320 Goudey Complete Set (96)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,819

Presented is a very attractive medium-grade complete set of 1934 R320 Goudey Gum. 40% of the cards range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt, 45% Vg, and 15% are in lesser grades (the lower-grade cards include some nice-looking cards that upon close examination are trimmed). The 1934 Goudey, also commonly referred to as the "Lou Gehrig says..." set, is one of the most popular of all 1930s bubble-gum card issues. Included are stars such as Lou Gehrig (who appears on two cards; portrait and batting), Dizzy Dean, and Jimmy Foxx, among others, as well as the very scarce 24-card high-number (#73-96) series that has always made completing this classic set especially challenging for collectors. Fifteen cards have been graded by PSA (except one SGC). Keys: #1 Foxx (Vg), 2 Cochrane (Vg), 6 Dean (slight trim, otherwise Vg), 7 Durocher (Gd-Vg), 10 Klein (Ex), 11 Waner (Vg-Ex), 12 Hubbell (trimmed, otherwise Ex-Mt), 13 Frisch (Vg), 18 Manush (Vg-Ex), 19 Grove (Vg), 21 Terry (Ex), 22 Vaughan (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 23 Gehringer (PSA VG-EX 4), 27 Appling (PSA EX-MT 6), 34 Hafey (Vg), 35 Lombardi (Gd), 37 Gehrig (PSA GOOD 2), 61 Gehrig (Gd), 62 Greenberg (slight trim, otherwise Gd). Twelve additional cards graded by PSA: #26 (EX-MT 6), 32 (EX-MT 6), 40 (EX 5), 59 (VG-EX 4), 67 (VG-EX 4), 72 (EX-MT 6), 75 High # (SGC VG/EX 50), 78 High # (EX 5), 87 High # (VG-EX 4), 92 (EX-MT 6), 93 (EX-MT 6), 95 (VG-EX 4). The condition of the twenty-four rare high numbers (#73-96) is as follows: seven cards range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt; thirteen cards are Vg, including #90 Cuyler and 96 DeShong; and four are trimmed, including #94 Rolfe. This is a very attractive and relatively affordable complete set of this classic Goudey issue, with a few condition problems (still nice-looking cards) and almost all very attractive mid-grade cards, which is highlighted by twenty Hall of Famers (including two Lou Gehrigs, both Gd), and twenty-four scarce high-number series cards. Also included with the set is an original wrapper (Ex), a Knot Hole League patch (Pr), and a 1937 Goudey Knot Hole League card (Gd). Total: 99 items (complete of 96 cards plus wrapper, patch, and 1937 Goudey card). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000.
