    Description

    1934 Goudey Jimmy Foxx #1 U.S. Patent/Copyright Card PSA Authentic. One of our favorite images of the game's greatest batters is the motion that made them our heroes - the swinging of the bat. It is this timeless pose that we find on the introduction card to the 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series featuring the National Leagues' answer to the Babe - Jimmy Foxx. His status is cemented in the fact that this baseball bubble gum trading card issue offers a pair of Lou Gehrig cards, his name and quotes yet it is "The Beast" that graces the #1 card. Any example of this card is a fine addition to a collection but this card is wholly unique. Hand cut from a very early production sheet, this glowing example is the card used to secure the patent with the Library of Congress, the date and serial number of "Jun - 7 1934" and "Copyright-CIA A 148470" respectively stamped on the reverse. Aside from this stamping, this specimen is displays remarkable colors and precision print registration. Not only is this among the first Foxx cards printed, it is one of the more visually impressive cards you'll find. The borders are hand cut but bright and problem-free. The result is a true population-one-of-one rarity and perhaps one of the most desirable Foxx trading cards ever to appear on the hobby's auction block. Encapsulated PSA Authentic.
