    Description

    1933 Goudey Napoleon Lajoie #106 PSA EX-MT 6. Only the famous Honus Wagner card of the T206 set could claim a more vast divide among card collectors between those who fervently desire a specimen and those that actually own one. Both the T206 Wagner and the 1933 Goudey Lajoie are so exceedingly scarce that listed full set prices for the issues fail to take them into consideration, beaten into submission by the knowledge that the cards just can't be found.

    However, we've located one for our Heritage bidding clientele, allowing one lucky customer to switch teams to the "haves" from the "have nots." Thanks must be offered to one young Depression-era set builder, who would not be deterred by the fact that card number 106 was not available in standard wax packs. It took a letter, mailed to the Boston offices of Goudey Gum Co., to earn this toughest of all cards from this Big Three set, accounting for their terrific rarity today.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6, one of eleven encapsulated as such with thirty grading higher. One suspects that a slight easterly shift of the image within the mildly toned borders is the factor that restricts a higher rating. The card is otherwise clean, retaining a state of preservation ranking it among the finer surviving Lajoie representations known.
