This is an extremely high-end example of the more difficult to find of the two Lou Gehrig cards in the 1933 Goudey series. Fantastic eye appeal is primarily attributed to rich coloration, superb registration and razor sharp corners. Gehrig’s at-bat image (courtesy of Charles Conlon) is portrayed against a flawless, blemish-free blue background. The 1933 Goudey issue is known historically as the first bubble gum baseball card set. The cards measure 2-3/8″ by 2-7/8″. The issue advertised 240 cards, but fell short by one as Nap Lajoie’s card #106 was not issued in 1933. Some believe this was done purposely to spur sales. In 1934, the #106 was sent for free to anyone who wanted it. Gehrig’s colorized portrayal depicts him drawn back, ready to unleash his powerful swing. This card is hard to find in this high grade. It is graded SGC Mint 9, and is one of just three graded MINT. None are rated higher than this example.
