Two Unique 1933 Goudey White Background Printing Error Cards (2)

Starting Bid - $1,500.00 , Sold For - $4,700.00

Two extremely rare (very possibly unique) 1933 Goudey variation cards: #28 Bartell (SGC VG 40) and 72 Carroll (SGC VG/EX 50). Both these cards have a very unusual “white” background. Goudeys, of course, were issued with many different background colors, but these two cards were regularly issued with a bright yellow background (#28 Bartell) and a blue background (#72 Carroll), respectively. Just as with T206s (which are well known for interesting color variations), cards from any set can theoretically be printed without receiving all the colors of the printing process. This can be due to the presses running out of a particular color ink during the printing process, or some other printing-related error. With 1933 Goudeys, quality control was so strong that printing anomalies of this kind are extremely rare, and are even more rarely seen with such a striking and dramatic difference to normally seen cards. This is an extremely unusual and probably unique pair of 1933 Goudey printing errors, and the first examples of this type that we can recall having ever encountered. Total 2 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,700.00
