Description:
1933 Goudey Baseball Progressive Proof Sheets Set (8) With 24 Different Cards. There are only three groups of complete sets of Goudey progressive proof sheets known to the hobby. One has been cut into individual cards, this is one of the surviving pair of complete sets. Most hobbyists young and old are perfectly content pulling cards from packs and enjoying their collections for fun, for investment or for some quality family time. What the most passionate strive to learn about is the step-by-step process by which the final product is achieved. This archive is a fantastic journey into that process. Where most printing oddities are quickly labeled as "proofs" we know that isn't always true. This presentation contains a total of eight uncut progressive proof sheets used to adjust vital printing tasks like ink density and print pressure guaranteeing the final product come out exactly as intended assuring quality and a happy consumer. As progressive proof they are truly among the first sheets to come hot off the press and used actually used by the pressmen cementing their right to be called proofs.

What we have been told is the sheets remained with Goudey until 1943 but not discovered until sometime during the 1970's. Each approx. 14-1/4" x 11-1/2" uncut sheet of the same 24 different cards is blank backed and includes such HoFers as Ki-Ki Cuyler, Bill Terry, Ted Lyons and Bill Dickey. Five of the sheets display one ink color; a sixth shows a spot red/yellow combination; the seventh shows the results of all five colors and the eight is the final product. A pair of punch holes suggests a project coordinator was keeping them organized and intact for archival purposes. Being unique, condition should be an afterthought but each has survived well with no creasing, staining or physical damage resulting in a visual grade of excellent-mint. Our consignor has commissioned a custom slipcase and hard cover binder to house the archive. Archival quality Mylar plastic houses each piece, all are separated by an acid-free paper page for individual viewing. These are truly the most important and historically significant uncut sheets known to the hobby.
