1933 Goudey
George Pipgras

I got my first Goudey in the early 1980s.

I remember thinking how cool it was to have a baseball card that was 50 years old.

Today I have several 1933 Goudys and each time I get a new one, I turn into a little kid again.

This gem arrived in the mail this morning. And after quickly ripping it from it's package, it became a favorite.

No matter the condition, Goudeys impress me every time. I don't think Goudey made a bad baseball card.

Take a look at that color! Not bad for a 77-year-old baseball card.
