    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #92 PSA NM-MT 8. Offered is one of two Gehrig entries from the vastly popular 1933 Goudey set. At the time the set appeared, Gehrig was thirty years old, at the height of his powers and still over 900 games away from his final total in his journey towards his 2,130-game consecutive game streak. He led the American League in RBI five times, with his league leading 173 RBI in 1933 topped by his league best 184 in '34. He finished his career, tragically cut short by ALS, in 1939, with 1,995 RBI. Lou also bashed 493 home runs, leading the league three times. He generated all this power while also being a superb contact hitter, batting .340 for his 17-year career, all with the Yankees. Lou was a key part of seven pennant winners and six Yankee World Series crowns. In a special election, he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1939.

    The 1933 Goudey set was the first sports card product packaged with bubble gum in every pack. Appearing in the nadir of the Great Depression with money for cards in short supply, it was nevertheless a great hit. This front player image was based on a 1927 Charles Conlon photograph of Gehrig that was later colorized by artists.

    There will be enhanced attention towards the Iron Horse in the future because MLB announced that starting in 2021, June 2 of each year will now feature Lou Gehrig Day, on which every Major League player will wear Gehrig's number on a red patch reading "4-ALS." Gehrig now joins Jackie Robinson and Roberto Clemente as the only former players to have an annual day in their honor. Graded PSA NM-MT 8.
