No pre-WWII baseball card sets could possibly be considered more popular than the inaugural Goudey gum set produced in 1933. Loaded with Hall of Famers, the 1933 Goudey’s colorful images and reverse side player “bios” were an instant hit with avid baseball fans. One of those prominent Cooperstown inductees is the illustrious hard hitting Athletics 1st baseman, Jimmie Foxx, presented here in an SGC 8.5 holder. How great was Foxx? Many baseball experts place him alongside Rogers Hornsby and Hank Aaron as the greatest right handed hitter in baseball history. His .325 lifetime batting average, 1,921 RBIs, 534 homeruns, 1933 Triple Crown and incredible 13 consecutive seasons of 100+ RBIs substantiate this notion and solidify his legacy. No wonder his peers called him “The Beast”! After Ruth and Gehrig, his 1930’s cards are certainly the most valuable as well as desirable momentoes for avid enthusiasts, and the 1933 #29 Goudey Foxx just might reside as his most sought-after cardboard keepsake. This SGC 8.5 offering’s condition absolutely defies logic as it appears to have just been “pulled” from a 1933 Goudey gum pack. His classic swinging pose is un-improvable, providing a miraculous combination of sheer perfection with regard to contrast and colored hues. An angelic-like and blemish free yellow background assists in the utmost projection of Foxx’s image, and the timeless illustration exhibits virtually “dead-on” centering between four super clean borders. Pinpoint corners, razor sharp edging and seemingly blemish-free surfaces complete one of the premier Foxx 1933 Goudey subjects in circulation. Unimaginable is the notion that a card from 1933 could sustain virtually all of its original “pack fresh” qualities. Sophisticated set registry builders fully comprehend the painstaking task involved with capturing a Foxx SGC 8.5 1933 Goudey subject. This is the highest-graded single in the hobby. Of the 559 singles PSA has graded, they’ve never graded anything higher than a PSA 8. Of the 250 on SGC’s Population Report, this is the only one that’s ever received a grade this high. Here’s your chance to add the nicest Goudey Foxx in existence to your collection.
