1933 R319 Goudey Partial Set (163/240) Plus 129 Duplicates Including 92 Hall of Famers
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $15,600
Exceptionally attractive collection 1933 Goudeys, consisting of a partial set of 163 different cards (out of 240) plus 129 duplicates, for a total of 292 cards from this classic issue. This collection is highlighted by a remarkable ninety-two Hall of Famers, including Jimmy Foxx, Lefty Grove, Dizzy Dean, and Carl Hubbell, among others, many of which appear in multiples. The 1933 Goudey set is universally recognized as the single most popular and collected of all 1930s gum issues, and one of the most significant of all prewar baseball-card issues. Condition of this collection is 25% Ex, 31% Vg-Ex, 15% Vg, and 29% lesser (many of which present as Vg-Ex to Ex but display evidence of a slight trim or have some flaw, such as paper loss, glue, tape, or erased writing, on the reverse). We have selected seven cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Bengough (Authentic), 2 Vance (Gd), 7 Lyons (Vg+), two 20 Terry (Ex and Fr), two 22 Traynor (Ex and Vg-Ex+), two 23 Cuyler (both Vg-Ex+), two 25 Waner (Ex and trimmed), 29 Foxx (VG-EX 4), two 31 Lazzeri (Vg and Fr), three 35 Simmons (Vg-Ex, Fr, and trimmed), three 47 Manush (all Ex), three 49 Frisch (Vg-Ex, Vg+, and trimmed), 56 Ruffing (Vg-Ex), four 60 Hoyt (Ex, Vg-Ex+, Pr tape on back, and trimmed), three 63 Cronin (Ex, Vg+, and Gd), four 64 Grimes (two Vg-Ex, Gd, and Pr, tape on back), two 73 Haines (Vg-Ex and Vg), three 74 Rixey (Vg-Ex, Vg+, and trimmed), two 76 Cochrane (PSA EX+ 5.5 and trimmed), four 102 Travis Jackson (Vg-Ex+, Vg+, Vg, and Pr, tape on back), 103 Combs (Vg-Ex), two 107 Manush (Ex and Fr), 109 Cronin (Authentic), two 110 Goslin (Vg and trimmed), two 117 Maranville (Ex and Vg-Ex), three 125 Terry (Ex, Vg-Ex, and Vg+), two 128 Klein (Vg and trimmed), 133 Lindstrom (Vg-Ex), 134 Rice (Pr, tape on back), 138 Pennock (Ex), 158 Berg (Vg), 164 Waner (Vg+), two 165 Sewell (Pr, tape on back, and trimmed), two 168 Goslin (Vg-Ex and Gd), 187 Manush (Vg-Ex+), two 188 Hornsby (Gd and Pr, tape on back), two 189 Cronin (Fr and Pr), two 194 Averill (Ex and Fr), three 197 Ferrell (Vg-Ex+, Vg, and Pr, tape on back), two 202 Hartnett (both Vg-Ex), two 207 Ott (EX 5 and trimmed), 211 Wilson (Pr, tape on back), two 216 Gomez (Vg+ and trimmed), two 220 Grove (Vg+ and Vg), two 222 Gehringer (VG-EX+ 4.5 and trimmed), two 223 Dean (EX 5 and Vg), three 234 Hubbell (Vg-Ex, Vg+, and Fr), and 240 Schumacher (Gd+).
