1933 R319 Goudey #29 Jimmy Foxx SGC NM/MT 88 - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $8,400
Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Stunning ultra high-grade example of #29 Jimmy Foxx from the 1933 Goudey set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with bold colors, including a sharp yellow background. Centered very slightly to the right. Four strong corners with just hints of minor wear visible under magnification, flawless registration, and off-white borders. Flawless reverse. This is a particularly rare card to find in such high grade in part because it is from the condition-sensitive low-number series of 1933 Goudey. An imposing physical specimen with bulging muscles, Foxx was more than just a slugger. In his prime, he challenged Babe Ruth's single-season home-run record, won three MVP awards, and the Triple Crown. He won two World Series titles with Connie Mack's Athletics, and retired as the second leading home-run hitter of all time, with 534 homers. Issued at the height of Foxx's career. The first line of the text on the back of this card reads "The player who’s giving Babe Ruth a battle for the title of Home Run King." Also included is a reference to Foxx's 58 home runs during the 1932 season. One of the key cards from the 1933 Goudey set, this is an extraordinary ultra high-grade example (literally the highest SGC-graded example ever!) of one of the most popular and classic Hall of Fame cards of the 1930s. SOLD FOR $8,400
