1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #92 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. Today, just as must have been the case 70-odd years ago, the sight of Lou Gehrig's batting posture never fails to generate excitement in the heart of the baseball enthusiast. Modern collectors can only marvel at the idea of peeling a gum pack's wrapper - and spotting the "NY" logo on the figure's cap, or picking up the sight of those Yankee pinstripes - as the full picture of the legend emerges into view. It's a thrill that knows no generational boundaries, largely because the '33 Goudey portrayal of the "Iron Horse" is such a timeless one. Like few others, this classic piece - with its incomparable subject - successfully captures and projects the "feel" of its era.

This gum card's status as an elite relic, while immediately apparent upon viewing, is corroborated by its ranking in SGC's population tallies. As one of only three copies sharing its tier (and surpassed by just one example) the relic stands at the apex of its number's 210-card census. And even at that, its NM/MT+ grade can be fairly termed a conservative assessment. Brilliant in every respect, this Gehrig tribute concedes just a hint of rightward image alignment on the front and a trace of wet-sheet transfer at the top edge on the back. This is, simply, a fantastic Goudey card, and one that reveals virtually no observable sign of circulation.
