Description1936 Goudey Baseball Complete Set (25) - #5 on the PSA Set Registry. Goudey Gum produced a set of 240 baseball cards in 1933 that turned out be an important and historic effort. The effects of the great depression certainly must have taken a toll as three seasons later their effort was limited to 25 subjects. Their 1936 effort saw a transition to Black & White portraits with player names in flowing script acting as the only adornment to an otherwise clutter-free design. Added value came in the form of copy making the cards part of a baseball table top card game. What didn't change was the star-studded player selection. Among the roster are eight men who were at the time future Hall of Famers including Kiki Cuyler, Lefty Gomez, Rick Ferrell, Paul Waner, Bucky Harris and Chuck Klein plus slugger Hank Greenberg and Mickey Cochrane. For Cochrane, this would prove to be one of the last cards of the great backstop issued during his career. In addition to those eight are another eleven All-Stars in Berger, Camilli, Crosetti, Derringer, Dykes, Hemsley, Higgins, Hildebrand, Martin, Newsom and Vosmik. This set is also among the most obscure Goudey baseball promotions with a total population of almost 1,750 submissions. By comparison, the PSA census shows over 21,000 graded cards from the 1934 set with submissions for the landmark 1933 issue approaching 80,000!
With a very impressive Grade Point Average of 7.54, this set is #4 on the Current Finest List on the PSA Set Registry. Includes: PSA NM-MT 8: 10 cards, Berger (None Higher), Brubaker, Dykes, Ferrell, Hemsley, Higgins, Hildebrand, Klein, Martin, Newsom,; PSA NM 7: 15 cards, Bonura, Bordagaray (None Higher), Camilli (None Higher), Castleman, Cochrane, Coscarart, Crosetti, Cuyler, Derringer (None Higher), Gomez (None Higher), Greenberg, Harris (None Higher), Vosmik, Waner and Werber.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
