    1936 World Wide Gum Lou Gehrig #96 PSA NM 7 - Pop One, None Higher! It seems that for every hundred 1933 & 1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig cards, you'll find one 1936 World Wide Gum card. A shame because the card features that same enduring smile of a man they called an "Iron Horse." Gehrig himself once said, "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." Though this is more of an illustration of Gehrig's tremendous modesty than a tongue-in-cheek statement of fact, it is certainly undeniable that the Canadian arm of Goudey just do not receive the same attention their American counterparts do.

    Graded PSA NM 7. One of only twenty-seven (total) reviewed by PSA. If you are looking for one in NM, this is your only option and there are none higher! In 1936, people were looking west at a rookie named DiMaggio while Lou Gehrig was adding to his streak of 2,160 consecutive games played and baseball immortality. Few of his cards are as scarce as his World Wide Gum card. There is some extremely mild obverse toning. Corners show gentle signs of wear at the outer tips. Centering in close to perfect. For the Gehrig specialist, this is a tough addition with little to compare.
