    Description

    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #160 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - Pop Two, Two 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.

    Here we present a strong representation of a key card in the the '33 Goudey set. A stunning combination of smooth and blemish free surfaces, deep rich hues and precise registration complement a remarkable absence of corner wear fueling an ascent to the loftiest regions of PSA's population report. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. As of this writing, this card is equaled by just one other with two additional examples that have managed a half-grade higher. One of the finest examples in the hobby!
