Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only five examples grade higher out of 644 examples evaluated by PSA to date. Very sharp example of this classic Gehrig card, one of the most popular of all his cards and all 1930s bubble-gum cards. The 1934 R320 Goudey "Lou Gehrig says..." series features an additional Gehrig portrait on the front, and words by him on the reverse (in the case of this card, an invitation to join Goudey's Knot Hole League of America club and to personally write him with questions about the game, which no doubt kept Christy Walsh or someone at Goudey very busy). Four sharp corners, strong bright colors, a flawless surface, and excellent centering. Perfectly clean front and back. This is a beautiful card: it's easy to see why it is not only one of the great Goudey cards that represent Gehrig in his prime, but also one of the best of all 1930s bubble-gum cards. In this memorable batting pose we actually have the opportunity to see what pitchers who faced Gehrig had to confront. No matter what pitchers threw Lou during the 1934 season, he was likely to belt a long one. A beautiful and extremely high grade example of one of Gehrig's most desirable cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+.
