1934 R320 Goudey #61 Lou Gehrig SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of this classic Gehrig card, one of the most popular of all Lou Gehrig cards and all 1930s bubble-gum cards. The 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series features an additional Gehrig portrait on the front, and words by him on the reverse (in the case of this card, an invitation to join Goudey's Knot Hole League of America club and to personally write him with questions about the game, which no doubt kept Christy Walsh or someone at Goudey very busy). The card features a crisp image with bold colors, a flawless surface, even wear to the corners, and centering towards the right. Clean reverse. This is a beautiful card: it's easy to see why: It is not only one of the great Goudey cards that represent Gehrig in his prime, but also one of the best of all 1930s bubble-gum cards. In this memorable batting pose we actually have the opportunity to see what pitchers who faced Gehrig had to confront. No matter what pitchers threw Lou during the 1934 season, he was likely to belt a long one. A beautiful high-quality example of one of Gehrig's most iconic cards in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,800
