Keys: Averill (Ex), Berg (Vg), Cronin (Vg), Dickey/Greenberg (paper loss on back, otherwise Ex), DiMaggio (Vg-Ex/Ex), Ferrells (Fr), Frisch (Vg-Ex), Gehringer (Gd), Gomez/Ruffing (Gd), Gomez (remnants of scrapbook paper on back, otherwise Ex), Goslin (Vg), Greenberg (Pr), Harris (Gd), Hornsby (Gd), Hoyt (Gd-Vg), Medwick (Vg-Ex), Simmons (Vg-Ex/Ex), Wagner (pencil on back, otherwise Vg), Waners (Vg). 2) 1936 R314 Goudey “Wide Pen” Premiums: Collection of 110 different, 56% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 44% lesser grades (most Gd, downgraded for either minor paper loss, pencil or ink, and/or remnants of scrapbook removal on the backs). Includes one yellow tint Canadian R314. Keys: Averill (Vg, Canadian), Cochrane (Gd), Cronin (ink on back, otherwise Vg), Cuyler (Vg), Dickey (ink on back, otherwise Vg-Ex), Ferrell (Vg-Ex), Frisch (pencil on back, otherwise Vg-Ex), Goslin (Vg-Ex), Harris (Vg), Hoyt (Ex), Klein (Pr), Lombardi (ink on back, otherwise Vg-Ex), Lopez (paper loss on back, otherwise Ex), Medwick (paper loss on back, otherwise Ex), Vaughan (Vg-Ex), P. Waner (Vg-Ex/Ex), L. Waner (Ex), Wes and Rick Ferrell (Vg-Ex). The high quality photographs used to produce these premiums make them among the most striking and distinctive of all 1930s issues. Premiums have received relatively little attention from collectors compared to traditional gum cards of the era, and a case can easily be made that they represent one of the best values of all 1930s baseball issues. Total 205 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200+. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
