    Description

    1932 U.S. Caramel Lou Gehrig #26 PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher! Collectors of high-grade caramel cards are an intrepid breed, chasing the most elusive of hobby prey. Their hunt is complicated not only by the relative scarcity to other formats resulting from limited original caramel card press runs, but also by the sweet confectionary itself, which tended to mar its cardboard commemoratives before they had even been hatched from their packaging. For U. S. Caramel enthusiasts, an exchange offer of a complete sets of cards for a baseball and a fielder's glove in exchange for thee complete sets is the fuel of collecting nightmares eight decades later. Thus the offered specimen is a most fitting tribute to its subject, a player as renowned for his unyielding durability as for his Hall of Fame skills. This is the Iron Horse of the caramel card league, one of only eight occupying the highest rung of the PSA population ladder.

    Its bold red coloring harkens back to another sticky sibling, the 1914-15 Cracker Jack issue likewise difficult to locate in the higher strata of the grading scale. It's lost none of its brilliance here, applied with perfect registration between beautifully white and precisely balanced borders. Corners are sharp, surfaces clean. It's a card every bit as handsome as the "Rawhide" silver screen star, and every bit as glorious as the Yankees' 1932 World Series sweep. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of eight in NM-MT with none graded higher.
