    Description

    1933 Sports King PSA-Graded Near Set (44/48). NOTE: A correction was made to the cards graded VG-EX+ and VG-EX.

    The Sport Kings issue was a particularly risky endeavor. Multi-sport issues had largely fallen out of favor after the late 19th century and 1933 was in the midst of the Great Depression. It remains one of the most painful eras of American history. It was a magical age for American sport, and for the Goudey Gum Company that serves today as that period's most coveted cardboard commemoration. In an era when even a penny trading card was a luxury item beyond the reach of many, the Goudey company bravely engineered a new era in the collecting hobby, launching the Bubble Gum Age with some of the most beautiful cards ever printed.

    Offered is a 44-card near set of this classic endeavor where every card has been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA NM-MT 8: 1 card, #41; PSA NM 7: 13 cards, #'s 8 Hagen, 10, 15, 20 Kahanamoku, 21 Weissmuller, 24 Morenz, 27, 28, 34, 35 Rockne, 36, 40, 48 Seppala; PSA EX-MT+ 6.5: 2 cards, #'s 4 Grange and 9; PSA EX-MT 6: 8 cards, #'s 16 Tilden, 22 Sarazen, 25, 30, 31, 32, 37 and 43 Carnera; PSA EX+ 5.5: 1 card, #26; PSA EX 5: 9 cards, #'s 5, 14, 18 Tunney, 19 Shore, 23, 29, 39, 44 Baer and 47; PSA VG-EX+ 4.5: 1 card, #12; PSA VG-EX 4: 4 cards, #'s 7, 13, 17 Dempsey and 33; PSA VG 3: 1 card, #1 Cobb; PSA Authentic: 4 cards, #'s 2 Ruth, 6 Thorpe, 42 Hubbell and 46.
