    Description

    1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig #61 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 wanted. It was Gehrig.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Only five rate higher. This specific example resonates with a remarkable presents thanks to the four frosty borders, a portrait with an abundance of the deepest, richest colors and precise registration resulting in a striking 3D effect. This is the closest 21st century hobbyists will come to experiencing what this card looked like just coming out a freshly opened pack. An apt commemorative for New York City's favorite son. It has been three years since Heritage Auctions has offered this card in NM-MT condition. The PSA census number have not risen since that time three years ago.
