    Description

    1933 Goudey Baseball Uncut Sheet A true pioneer in the field of bubble gum cards, The Goudey Gum Company of Boston, Massachusetts created some of the most beloved pieces of cardboard ever sealed in wax paper. From Indians to aviators to sports heroes, Goudey Gum packs held treasures for kids throughout the late 1940's. For reasons that may be obvious, portraits of the men who played America's Game have long been favored by children of all ages, and the cards that came packed with Big League Chewing Gum are no exception.

    Goudey released several sets featuring stars of the diamond, beginning in 1933. Offered here is a rarely seen uncut sheet of 24 cards from that inaugural set, featuring Hall of Fame heroes Charlie "Red" Ruffing, Eppa Rixey, Jesse Haines, Tris Speaker and The Sultan of Swat himself - "Babe" Ruth! Technically, the sheet is in close to excellent condition. There are a few short wrinkles coming in from the top and bottom edges, a column of tape adhesive staining affect then left edge. Corners show mild wear.

    Uncut sheets from era are extremely rare and are among the most treasured elements of any size vintage collection. Once in private hands they tend to stay there. This is a rare chance that should not be taken lightly as it may be quite some time before another comes available at auction. The sheet measures 11-1/2" x 14-3/16." It has been professionally framed and matted with dual glass for viewing on both sides to and overall size of 23-1/2" x 20-3/4" and is ready for display.
