The 1934 Goudey Baseball card issue followed one of the most coveted pre-war sets of all time.
The set is beautiful and leverages a similar, colorful design as seen with the 1933 Goudey baseball card set.
Yet, a glaring omission is the lack of any Babe Ruth cards in the set (recall, Babe has four cards in the 1933 Goudey set).
Yankee slugger Lou Gehrig is the main focus of the set.
The "Iron Horse" is the only player with multiple cards in the set. Gehrig's face is also featured on the majority of the card fronts, with a quote from Gehrig on the backs.
Collectors sometimes refer to this one as the 'Lou Gehrig Goudey' set.
Follow along as I explore the 1934 Goudey issue, providing data on scarcity, investment potential, and the most valuable cards in the set.
