    1933 Goudey Napoleon Lajoie #106 PSA VG-EX+ 4.5. Only the famous Honus Wagner card of the T206 set could claim a more vast divide among card collectors between those who fervently desire a specimen and those that actually own one. Both the T206 Wagner and the 1933 Goudey Lajoie are so exceedingly scarce that listed full set prices for the issues fail to take them into consideration, beaten into submission by the knowledge that the cards just can't be found.

    Happily, we've located an example for our Heritage bidding clientele, allowing one lucky collector to switch teams to the "haves" from the "have nots." Thanks must be offered to one young set builder, who would not take a missing number acceptable, and would not be deterred from completing his treasured assembly. Remember, it took a letter mailed to the Boston offices of Goudey Gum Co., to earn what is now the toughest of all cards from this Big Three set, accounting for its famous scarcity today.

    Graded PSA VG-EX+ 4.5. Your first impression is that the card is a solid excellent condition card and no one would disagree. There is no surface loss, front or back. No ink marks, pencil marks, erasures, staining, print ghosting, etc., etc. The only element one will find is some consistent and totally acceptable corner wear. Centering is a study on precision. Pleasing condition aside, the real prize is the impact of its visual appeal. Colors are brilliant. Registration is precise leaving a crisp and sharp portrait with nothing to detract from 100% total enjoyment. An unquestionably solid example of one of the most iconic cards in the hobby.

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