Pre-war baseball continues with a good run of 1928 Yuengling’s Ice Cream, with five HOFers including Rogers Hornsby and John McGraw. There are several lower grade 1933 Goudeys and a solid run of the exotic 1933 R337 Eclipse Import issue that is loaded with HOFers. Collectors of 1934 Goudeys and 1941 Double Plays will see a strong selection as well.
