    1936 Goudey Baseball Complete Set (25) - #4 on the PSA Set Registry. This set is #4 on the "Current Finest" list on the PSA Set Registry with a very impressive Grade Point Average of 7.54 (NM+). 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.
