Heritage Sports 1933 Goudey PSA Set Registry Auction Ends January 24, 2019

Heritage Sports is offering the #1 1933 Goudey card set from the PSA Set registry,  that is being broken into 240 lots, with each card being offered individually in the current January 24, 2019 auction. Heritage Auctions is holding this auction dedicated solely to this set. Bid, view and register for the auction at sports.ha.com.

It was the greatest expression of optimism in the history of the trading card industry, launching the Bubble Gum Era of card collecting during the darkest days of the Great Depression. As banks failed and desperate men waited for hours in bread lines, the Goudey Gum Company broke new ground with a 240-card issue featuring such pre-war legends as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Mel Ott.

Heritage Auctions will scatter those 240 parts to the collecting winds with the presentation of the Number One Current Finest assembly in the PSA Set Registry, the fourth finest of all time. Bidding is now open for the Jan. 24 auction.

“Everybody loves the 1933 Goudey issue,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions at Heritage. “It’s a real thrill to bring the best set in the hobby to our bidding audience.”

Calculated to a combined rating of a remarkable 8.68, the set is broken down into its individual components in this single-consignor event, surrendering the PSA throne in the process, most likely to an active bidder in this sale.

Nearly half of the thirty-four cards graded PSA Mint 9 feature subjects immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame, including GroveOttHubbell, one Gehrig, two Ruths (#144 and #181) and one of the hobby’s foremost “grails,” the elusive Nap Lajoie #106.
