Presented is a extremely attractive medium-grade complete set of 1938 R323 Goudey Gum. The 1938 Goudey, also commonly referred to as the "Heads-Up" set, is one of the most popular of all 1930s bubble-gum card issues. Included are stars such as Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller, Hank Greenberg, and Jimmy Foxx. Eight cards have been graded by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: #241 Gehringer (Gd), 246 Lombardi (tiny tear on the lower left edge, otherwise Vg-Ex), 249 Foxx (VG 40), 250 DiMaggio (FAIR 20), 253 Greenberg (GOOD 30), 257 Lopez (Gd), 258 Doerr (Gd), 262 Medwick (Gd), 264 Feller (VG/EX 50), 265 Gehringer (Fr), 270 Lombardi (Vg), 273 Foxx (Gd), 274 DiMaggio (FAIR 20), 277 Greenberg (VG 40), 281 Lopez (VG 40), 282 Doerr (Vg), 286 Medwick (Pr), and 288 Feller (GOOD 30). The balance of the cards grade 85% Vg to Vg-Ex (includes a few better), and 15% lesser. This is a very attractive and relatively affordable complete set of this classic Goudey issue, highlighted by what are among the most desirable cards (two of each, with and without cartoon backgrounds) of many of the era's key stars, including Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller, Hank Greenberg, and Jimmy Foxx. The equivalent SMR value for the eight graded cards (not including the forty ungraded cards) is $1,365. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500++. SOLD FOR $4,444
