1932 R328 U.S. Caramel #26 Lou Gehrig

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,300

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Presented is a magnificent midgrade example of this classic Lou Gehrig card. This is one of Gehrig's rarest 1930s cards and one of the key cards to the U.S. Caramel set. The 1932 multsport set produced by U.S. Caramel is considerably rarer than Goudeys and most other 1930s sets, and has long been recognized as among the most desirable issues of the era. With their distinctive red backgrounds, they are also widely regarded as one of the most striking of all baseball-card issues. This R328 U.S. Caramel Lou Gehrig example is bright and clean, both front and back, with light, even wear visible to the four corners. Gehrig’s flawless portrait image contrasts sharply against the bold red background. Perfectly centered. The black text on the reverse is crisp, bold, and essentially flawless. The R328 is one of Gehrig's most popular and desirable cards, and one of the most famous and majestic cards in the collecting world. The R328 Gehrig is also far rarer than Gehrig's 1933 Goudey counterparts. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Gehrig's most classic cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,300
