Complete set of all four cards which comprise the R309-1 Goudey Premiums set: 1) Babe Ruth (Good condition due to small amount of debris on the front and two pieces of excess paper adhered to the back); 2) 1933 American League All Stars with Ruth and Gehrig (Poor condition due to missing easel, small tear at bottom edge, paper loss and glue residue on back); 3) 1933 National League All Stars (Good+ condition due to creasing across the top of the card and a modest sized area of discoloration on the back); and 4) 1933 “World Champions” New York Giants with Mel Ott (Good condition due to creasing and small tear along bottom border). This issue was available only by mail in exchange for Goudey Gum wrappers. These very substantial high-quality premiums, which are printed on thick cardboard stock, are designed with a foldout cardboard easel attachment on the reverse, which allows each card to stand on its own for display. Three of the four examples have the easel backs intact and complete. Even though these cards do not technically grade very high, they are bright and clean and have an overall appearance far superior to that suggested by the modest grades. This is a very attractive complete set of four Goudey premiums from 1933 including Babe Ruth, representing an outstanding vintage-card collecting value. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
