1933 R319 Goudey Collection (63) Including Ruth, Gehrig, and 15 Other Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,444

Presented is a collection of sixty-three different cards from the 1933 R319 Goudey series, one of the most popular gum issues of the 1930s, highlighted by seventeen Hall of Famers, including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. This collection represents slightly more than one-quarter of a complete set and originates from an old-time collection consigned to this auction. The condition of these cards overall is very modest, with almost all grading Pr to Gd, but there are still some nice-looking cards, and miraculously, the Ruth and Gehrig cards are among the strongest in the lot (we have submitted these two cards to SGC for grading and they obviously represent the majority of the value of the lot). This collection consists of the following: #2 Vance (HOF, Pr), 6, 7 Lyons (HOF, Pr), 9, 15, 17, 20 Terry (HOF, Pr), 25 P. Waner (HOF, Pr), 28, 29 Foxx (HOF, Pr), 32, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42 Collins (HOF, Vg), 49 Frisch (HOF, Vg), 51, 52, 60 Hoyt (HOF, Vg), 61, 62, 63 Cronin (HOF, Pr), 66, 71, 75, 78, 79 Faber (HOF, Gd), 85, 93, 94, 103 Combs (HOF, Fr), 104, 138 Pennock (HOF, Pr), 139, 141, 152, 160 Gehrig (GOOD+ 35), 166, 170, 173, 181 Ruth (HOF, VG+ 45), 186, 193, 194 Averill (HOF, Gd), 195, 201, 203, 206, 212, 213, 215, 217, 222 Gehringer (HOF, Pr), 224, 225, 226, 227 Herman (HOF, Fr), 228, and 233. This is an outstanding lot for the collector who wants original, authentic, classic 1933 Goudey bubble-gum cards, including many of the great Hall of Famers of the era, without spending a fortune. The equivalent SMR value for just the Ruth and Gehrig cards (calculating them at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,050. Total: 63 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $4,444
