1938 R323 Goudey "Heads-Up" Partial Set (27/48) Including Eleven Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,900

Collection of twenty-seven different R323 1938 Goudey "Heads-Up" cards (out of the forty-eight in the set), highlighted by eleven Hall of Famers, including Bob Feller and Jimmy Foxx. The 1938 Goudey set is one of card collecting's most classic issues, featuring many Hall of Famers, and with a "Heads-Up" design that is unique to the era. This is a very impressive-looking group of cards! It is also a very substantial group that could serve as the foundation for the assembly of a beautiful complete set. We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. This collection consists of the following: #241 Gehringer (HOF, VG-EX 4), 242, 244, 246 Lombardi (HOF, Vg-Ex), 247, 248, 249 Foxx (HOF, EX 5), 253 Greenberg (HOF, VG-EX 4), 254, 255, 256, 258 Doerr (HOF, Vg-Ex), 259, 261, 262 Medwick (HOF, Vg-Ex+), 264 Feller (HOF, EX-MT 6), 265 Gehringer (HOF, VG-EX+ 4.5), 267, 268, 270 Lombardi (HOF, VG-EX 4), 279, 281 Lopez (HOF, EX 5), 282 Doerr (HOF, Gd), 283, 284, 285, and 287. The ungraded cards grade mostly Vg-Ex to Ex, but include three Gd/Vg. All cards are bright and crisp, with light corner wear or faint creases responsible for any downgrades. This is a substantial group of 1938 Goudey "Heads-Up" gum cards, representing slightly more than half the set and highlighted by eleven Hall of Famers, including Bob Feller and Jimmy Foxx. The SMR value for just the seven graded cards is $1,755. Total: 27 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,900
