    Description

    One of the two Mint 9 examples known!

    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #160 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Two, None Higher! Though the incredible consecutive games streak that earned Lou Gehrig his famous Iron Horse nickname would ultimately extend into the opening weeks of the 1939 season, that unbroken chain had almost been snapped twice in 1933. On April 23rd, an errant pitch struck Gehrig in the head, briefly turning out the lights. Seven weeks later, Gehrig and manager McCarthy were tossed for arguing with the umpire, but a single at-bat earned Lou credit for an appearance. As the nation suffered through the devastating effects of the Great Depression, Gehrig continued to inspire with his uncommon resilience.

    This extraordinary relic stands as a most fitting commemorative of the stalwart first baseman, dodging the dangers of decades of life without so much as a scratch, faithfully standing sentinel atop the PSA population rankings. Search all you'd like--you'll find not a single stumble here, from the color to the registration to the corners to the centering. It quite literally doesn't get any better than this.
