    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #160 PSA NM-MT 8 (OC). The terms "The Great Depression" and "pack fresh" certainly don't seem like an obvious pairing, so when our consignor made this claim about Lou Gehrig's all-important #160 card from the '33 Goudey set, we were duly skeptical. But sure enough, straight from the Dust Bowl days comes this cardboard miracle, with corners as sharp as the day they were cut, over seven decades ago. Front and back surfaces are equally spectacular, leaving the only stone to throw the imperfect centering that has resulted in an O/C qualifier. Given the archaic processes that were used to cut the cards from sheets at this time however, we can't turn up our noses at this mild deviation from perfection. Check the population charts and you'll see that cards this pristine just don't appear in the hobby. Only twenty have ever achieved a qualified PSA 8 or better in well over 300 attempts.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
