    Description

    1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig #37 PSA NM-MT 8. Lou Gehrig was once quoted as saying, "I'm not a headline guy. I know that as long as I was following Ruth to the plate I could have stood on my head and no one would have known the difference." He couldn't have been more wrong. The same historic season the Babe knocked out sixty, Gehrig put forty-seven souvenirs into the seats and claimed the American League MVP Award. By the 1934 season, the Yankee balance of power had completed its shift, with Gehrig doubling the Babe's offensive production in homers and runs batted in. When the Goudey Gum Company reached out to Christy Walsh to sign one of his players to an endorsement deal, it wasn't Ruth they signed. When it comes to their celebrated sophomore issue, Goudey could not have made it much better than this. This series doesn't just include Gehrig twice, it is dedicated to the set's Hall of Fame spokesman who gives player commentary.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. This specific example provides a marvelous physical and visual aesthetic as it displays an almost complete lack of wear. Only three examples have ever charted higher on the PSA population ladder. Colors are radiant, nicely complimented by the super-clean surfaces and high-quality corners. The Iron Horse looks just like a new hatchling from a 1934 wax pack. While Lou may have felt he was in the shadows but his brilliance is confirmed by his passionate following eighty-five years later.
