Lot # 434 (of 1641)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1933 and 1934 Goudey Hall of Famer Collection Altered (25) Including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $5,036

Collection of twenty-five different 1933 and 1934 Goudey Hall of Famers, each of which has been rejected for grading by SGC due to trimming. Highlighted by 1933 Goudey #181 Babe Ruth and 1934 Goudey #37 Lou Gehrig (both with an outstanding appearance of Nr/Mt or better). Each card in this collection has an appearance ranging from Excellent to Nr/Mt-Mt, most Nr/Mt or better, but each card apparently has at one time been very slightly trimmed. The trimming is very subtle, and is impossible to detect without a trained eye. While these cards will never be graded by PSA or SGC, they do represent an extraordinary value for the collector who wants beautiful original ungraded examples of these classics, at a far more affordable level than numerically graded examples with a similar appearance. The collection consists of the following: 1933 Goudey (22 cards): #2 Vance, 7 Lyons, 19 Dickey, 20 Terry, 22 Traynor, 25 Waner, 35 Simmons, 56 Ruffing, 60 Hoyt, 63 Cronin, 64 Grimes, 73 Haines, 89 Speaker, 102 Jackson, 134 Rice, 168 Goslin, 181 Babe Ruth, 194 Averill, 202 Hartnett, 207 Ott, 216 Gomez, and 222 Gehringer. 1934 Goudey (3 cards): #12 Hubbell, 19 Grove, and 37 Lou Gehrig. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $5,036
