Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of this classic Gehrig card, one of the most popular of all Lou Gehrig cards and all 1930s bubble-gum cards. The 1934 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). The card features a crisp image with bold colors, a flawless surface, light and even wear to the corners, and centering slightly towards the right. Clean reverse. This card is conservatively graded in our opinion and would not look out of place in an SGC EX/NM 80 holder. A beautiful high-quality example of one of Gehrig's most iconic cards in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
