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.
