Winning Bid $75     

Lot 41.  1934 Goudey Wrapper with Lou Gehrig. This wrapper might once have contained a highly valuable card of Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx or Hank Greenberg. Or maybe a less valuable card of a more common player. Whatever the case, it shows the usual folds and resulting wrinkles, but no signs of abuse. It will make an excellent addition to a wrapper collection or complement to a 1934 Goudey set.

Lot 47.  Extremely Rare Late 1930s Blum Premium of John (Honus) Wagner. This premium was uncataloged in Sports Collector Digest’s 2012 “Standard Catalog” and in Beckett’s 2011 “Almanac.” We have never seen another copy. This example is the 11.5” x 13.75” variety. Typically, the date given for theses premiums - from Fred J. Blum and his “Blum’s Baseball Bulletin – ranges from 1929-34. The earliest possible date for this premium, however, is 1936 because it describes Wagner as a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Wagner was selected with the inaugural class in 1936 and inducted in 1939. The premium has two small pieces of tape at the top of the blank back. They apparently were once used to hold the premium in place. Otherwise, it grades g-vg with two small edge chips and displays as vg-ex. It appears to be among the rarest of Wagner collectibles.
Winning Bid $700
