1934 R309-1 Goudey Premiums Complete Set (4)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
Complete set of all four cards which comprise the R309-1 Goudey Premiums set: 1) Babe Ruth (Fair condition, crisp image, pinhole near top border, pencil mark in bottom border, top left corner crease); 2) 1933 American League All Stars with Ruth and Gehrig (Good condition due to light creasing through the center of the card and a lower left corner crease); 3) 1933 National League All Stars (Good condition due to light creasing in the center of the image and in the top right corner); and 4) 1933 “World Champions” New York Giants with Mel Ott (Fair condition due to small tear on the bottom border and some light creasing). This issue was available only by mail in exchange for Goudey Gum wrappers. These very substantial high-quality premiums, which are printed on thick cardboard stock, are designed with a foldout cardboard easel attachment on the reverse, which allows each card to stand on its own for display. All four examples have the easel backs intact and complete. Even though these cards do not technically grade very high, they are bright and clean and have an overall appearance far superior to that suggested by the modest grades. This is a very attractive mid-grade complete set of four Goudey premiums from 1933 including Babe Ruth, representing an outstanding vintage-card collecting value. Total: 4 cards. SOLD FOR $840
