Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only two examples have ever been graded higher by PSA. Magnificent ultra high-grade example of #274 Joe DiMaggio, one of the key cards from the 1938 Goudey "Heads-Up" series, and one of the great classics of vintage-card collecting. DiMaggio is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Joe DiMaggio cards, and of all 1930s bubble-gum cards. This example is bright and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, perfect registration, and four sharp corners with just the slightest hint of wear visible only under magnification. The reverse is centered very slightly to the left and there is a hint of even natural toning from age (which many collectors consider a positive attribute). This is a very attractive and extremely high grade example of one of the key cards from the 1938 Goudey set and one of the most popular cards of the era. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $11,500. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
