    Description

    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #92 SGC 96 Mint 9. Today, just as must have been the case almost 80 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 none) the relic stands at the apex of its number's 282-card census. Brilliant in all regards, this Gehrig tribute concedes just a trace of wet-sheet transfer very mildly impacting the reverse. This is simply put, a fantastic Goudey card and one that reveals virtually no observable sign of circulation.
