25% Ex (includes a few better), 50% Vg-Ex, 20% Vg, 5% slightly lesser. Very pleasing medium-grade complete set of the 1934 Goudey "Lou Gehrig Says..." series, so named because the text on the backs are written, according to the cards, by Lou Gehrig.

The condition of the 24 rare high #'s (73-96) is as follows: 4 cards are Ex, 13 cards range from Vg-Ex to Vg-Ex/Ex including #90 Cuyler (Vg-Ex), #94 Rolfe (downgraded to Vg-Ex due to minor stain, otherwise Ex-Mt), and #96 DeShong (Vg-Ex), 6 cards are Vg, and one card is lesser (#95 Hoag appears Ex-Mt but has a very slight trim along right border). Attractive complete set of this classic Goudey issue, which is highlighted by 20 Hall of Famers (including two Lou Gehrigs), and 24 scarce high number series cards. Total 96 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $4,600.00
