Description1938 Goudey Jimmy Foxx #249 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop Two, None Higher!
Yankees Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Gomez once said "He has muscles in his hair." He was referring to National League's answer to the Babe - slugger Jimmy Foxx. The 500 Home Run Club became a duo during the final week of the 1940 season when Foxx joined Ruth in long ball immortality. One of the most feared right-handed hitters in baseball history, Foxx was a key force in breaking the 1920's Yankees' stranglehold on the American League, supplying Philadelphia with three pennants and two World Championships during Connie Mack's second great Athletics dynasty.
Graded SGC 96 Mint 9. One of a pair to earn the coveted 96 Mint 9 grade with SGC, there are none rated higher. Centering is about as perfect as one could hope for; Corner tips all come to precise 90-degree angles; Surfaces are problem-free, a slight haze of toning is all that exists to hint that the card is over 75-years old. His "Heads-Up" appearances are his most scarce with the Goudey brand and the most condition sensitive. To date, SGC has only anointed ten '38 Goudey cards with a "Mint" label from over 1,700 submissions. Foxx accounts for two of those coveted near-pristine gems.
