    Description

    1933 Goudey Napoleon Lajoie #106 PSA Good+ 2.5. 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 absent 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 an example for our Heritage bidding clientele, allowing one lucky collector 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 or an angry parent who felt they saw a gimmick when they smelled one. 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 Good+ 2.5. The back shows some overall mild to modest toning. Along the right edge is some wrinkling, soiling with some slight surface marring mostly confined to the lower portion. In the same area on the obverse one finds the same ailments sans the wrinkling. The very nicely centered portrait is barely affected and retains strong color quality. A solid example of one of the most iconic cards in the hobby.
