About two years ago I had a chance to buy a 1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig.
I forget the asking price but it was less than I thought and I remember thinking to myself: "I can do this."
But I didn't.
So up until a few days ago I was Gehrig-free. Then I saw this card on eBay. Sure it's not from his playing days but it's a sweet card. It really is.
I think the 1961 Fleer set is underrated and definitely under-appreciated. It's simple design is really classic.
And if you are looking for a card of Lou Gehrig or Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb or Honus Wagner you may want to consider the 1961 Fleer set. Plus, you won't have to take out a loan from your local bank to get it.
I wonder what it was like for a kid in 1961 to pull a Lou Gehrig from the pack.
Did anyone ever utter the words, "I'll trade you my Babe Ruth for your Lou Gehrig and Mel Ott?"
Anyone out there remember collecting this set? I'd like to hear from you.
