    1933 Goudey Red Faber #79 PSA Mint 9 - Pop One, None Higher! Red Faber was a 20-year veteran who played his entire career with the Chicago White Sox. His lifetime 254 victories and 3.15 ERA earned him a spot in Cooperstown. Victimized by the Spanish Flu pandemic that took the lives of an estimated five percent of the global population in the months surrounding the close of the First World War, the Chicago White Sox' star pitcher Red Faber proved too ill to participate in a World Series which would live in infamy and doom eight of his teammates to banishment from organized ball. An honest (though inactive) member of the 1919 Chicago White Sox World Series team, Faber had been brilliant in the 1917 Fall Classic two seasons earlier, earning three of the four wins required to dispatch the New York Giants. Years later, catcher Ray Schalk would theorize that the fix might never have happened had Faber not been incapacitated, believing that the future Hall of Famer would never have taken the poisoned bait and would have assumed a couple of the tainted starts from Cicotte and Williams.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. A "Pop One With None Higher!" title holder! This card appeared in 1933 which was to be his last year for Chicago, or any other team for that matter. The offered example has no flaws unless you call a hint of fizz at one corner tip a fault. The other three corner are unquestionably mint if not nicer. For the ultimate '33 enthusiast.
