1933 Goudey Baseball Cards
Checklist & Values

1933 Goudey Baseball card checklist, values and prices.
1933 Goudey baseball cards were issued during the worst part of
The Great Depression. The set ended up at 240 cards (239 printed
in 1933 and one in 1934). In an effort to attract collectors,
several of the games top players were honored with multiple cards
including "The Great Bambino" who appeared on 4 different cards.
The Babe was once asked why he made more than the President of the
United States, the Babe answered simply: "I had a better year than he did."
The Elusive Nap Lajoie
One of the most important facts regarding the 1933 Goudey set was their
infamous marketing ploy. Goudey took "marketing" to a whole new level
to keep people buying packs by never issuing card #106. Collectors wrote
the Goudey Card Company complaining. They were rewarded with Goudey
sending them the un-issued card #106 (Nap Lajoie) in 1934.

Auction's most costly vintage baseball cards
Over 5,000 vintage sports and non-sports items in each weekly auction
The history of vintage baseball card auctions is long and colorful.
T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco cards have sold for upto $2.8 million in
auction. The "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", it's extreme-high auction
value can mostly be attributed to great PR and "auction fever".
It's not close to being the rarest baseball card and Honus Wagner is not
Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle. Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful & special but
because of the # of cards and scarcities, few collector's try to complete,
which should keep auction competition down compared to say 1933 Goudey
or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
BUT IT DOES NOT...
There's a story Wagner banned his card because he was anti-tobacco
but there are other stories about financial considerations.
You surely have heard of PSA and may even know that this card was the
FIRST they ever graded. But did you know that dealer (B.l. .ast.o name
encoded) admitted tampering with the card, perhaps having it trimmed
down to size, before PSA graded it so highly for the auction.

Baseball, Football, Basketball & Hockey Memorabilia Cards
It's cool to have a card of your favorite player.
It's even cooler to have your favorite player's jersey or bat.
Well just think how cool it is to have a card of your favorite player
embedded with a piece of his bat or jersey that he used in a real major league game !!!
That's the concept that Upper Deck dazzled the hobby with in 1996. Ever since the
hobby has been in love with Game-Used memorabilia cards and they have become a
staple of sportscard collecting. Originally they were very scarce inserts with
less than 1 every few boxes. Now these insert cards are so popular that
many products include one in every pack.
