A private collection of about 450 mostly pre-1950s baseball cards including a near set of 1933 Goudey has been consigned to auction and is now on eBay.
Sparkle City Collectibles of Middletown, NY is selling the collection on behalf of a long-time customer.
The collection includes three 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth cards, all graded 3 (VG) by either SGC or PSA; both Lou Gehrig cards from the set, each rated 3.5 and a PSA 5 Jimmie Foxx.
Numerous other pre-War baseball and hockey cards, a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie and other Hall of Famers and single cards are also part of the auction which closes over three nights, April 27-29.

A recently discovered mini treasure trove of baseball history was chased down after some competitive bidding early Sunday morning.
RMY Auctions offered the group of four photos featuring a clash of two of baseball’s greatest icons. Taken from the stands on the third base side, they show Babe Ruth pitching to Ty Cobb and Cobb sliding into third. Fortunately, the photographer included handwritten descriptions of the action.
Believed to have been taken on May 15, 1918, the images were taken by a young adult fan who attended the game with friends while serving in the armed forces. The quartet sold for $32,399.

Collectable shareholders have rejected a $225,000 offer for a PSA 9 OPC Wayne Gretzky rookie card.
While the offer represented a 213.8% premium over the price investors paid on the IPO a few months ago, recent selling prices convinced 63% of the card’s shareholders to vote no.
The card will now continue to trade on Collectable’s secondary market.
