    Description

    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #160 PSA VG 3. Here's a chance to get a rare Lou Gehrig rookie card from the memorable 1933 Goudey set. The 1933 Goudey issue broke new ground as the first major issue of gum baseball cards. This was occurring during the depths of the Great Depression when banks were foreclosing on homes and farms, and then the banks themselves were going bankrupt. Unlike the earlier cigarette cards that were directed at adults, the gum cards were primarily intended for young boys - youths who might not have the cash for many packs of cards during such dire economic times. But things worked out well for Goudey, and the bubble gum era for card collecting was under way. Graded PSA VG 3.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
