    Description

    1933 Delong Gum Co. Lou Gehrig #7 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. Emerging the same year as the first great Goudey set, the Delong issue likewise deserves recognition as one of the hobby's chewing gum pioneers, though the Delong breed is a great deal tougher to locate. With Babe Ruth absent from the twenty-four card issue, Gehrig stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of value, more than tripling that of the runner-up. Here we present a remarkably strong representation of the Delong set's key card, combining wonderful color and registration with a stunning absence of wear to climb to the upper regions of SGC's population. While three examples have charted higher as of this writing, it is worthy of note that it is imperfect left/right centering rather than issues of wear that accounts for the grade of this card as posted. One could rightfully assume that this matches the few "superior" cards that exist in every other regard, and perhaps even surpasses them. Unquestionably one of the finest examples on earth.
