For more vintage Goudey cards, please check out my other items: https://www.ebay.com/str/iconsportscards About the Set: The 1933 Goudey (R319) set was produced by the Goudey Gum Company of Boston, MA and used to market tins/packs of chewing gum. The detailed artwork and vivid colors used to manufacture the cards are what make them a favorite among vintage collectors today. 1933 Goudey comprises of a 240 card set, each card measuring 2 3/8” x 2 7/8”. Key cards include Babe Ruth, who has four different cards in the set (53, 144, 149 & 181), Jimmy Foxx, Carl Hubell, Lefty Grove, Rogers Hornsby, Mel Ott, and many other legendary Hall of Famers. There is also a a very rare short-printed Nap Lajoie card (#106), which was not included in the regular print run of the set and is widely believed to have been intentionally left out in order to make it harder for collectors to finish the set. from Wikipedia: Goudey From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jimmy Foxx 1933 Goudey baseball card. The Goudey Gum Company was an American chewing gum company started in 1919. The company was founded by Enos Gordon Goudey (1863–1946) of Barrington Passage, Nova Scotia. Formerly an employee of Beemans, he opened a factory in Boston, Massachusetts in 1919 and later in Allston. It operated there from 1924 until it closed in 1962. Goudey sold the business in 1932 but he retained an interest as a consultant. On his retirement in 1933, William Wrigley Jr. dubbed him the "penny gum king of America". Today the Goudey name is mainly associated with its collectible baseball cards which were introduced in 1933. Goudey was the first American company to issue baseball cards with each stick of gum. (They had been available with cigarettes and certain lines of candy for many years.)[1][2] Goudey baseball cards Moe Berg Goudey card Most of the unreleased cards, printing plates, and company archives were thrown away in the 1960s, although some were sold to collectors. Today, cards in good condition command a premium, especially those authenticated and graded by respected third-party graders. Hank Greenberg and Lou Gehrig are prominently featured in the Goudey cards of the 1930s, colorful cards with hand drawn portraits of the players. Other baseball hall of fame and interesting players depicted on Goudey gum cards from 1933 to 1941 include: Ty Cobb, Jimmie Foxx, Bill Dickey, Carl Hubbell, Lefty Grove, Dizzy Dean, Mickey Cochrane, Charlie Gehringer, Tony Lazzeri, Mel Ott, Joe Dimaggio, Hank Greenberg, "Ducky" Joe Medwick and Moe Berg. 1933 set Nap Lajoie Goudey card, one of the rarest baseball cards. In 1933, Goudey produced a 240 card set, also called "Big League Chewing Gum". These cards, issued with bubble gum in each pack, were the first baseball gum cards. The 1933 Goudey set is considered one of the "Big Three" classic baseball card sets, along with the T206 and 1952 Topps sets. One of the rarest baseball cards from a mainstream set is card #106 from the 1933 Goudey set. It was not originally issued with the set, so collectors could not complete the set from packs. In 1934, Goudey issued card #106 for the 1933 set with retired player [Napoleon Lajoie]. Collectors that sent letters to the Goudey Gum Company complaining about the lack of a #106 card received it in the mail. The 1933 Goudey #106 Napoleon Lajoie is known as one of the "Big Three" baseball cards along with two cards from the T206 set depicting Honus Wagner and Eddie Plank. 1934 set In 1934, Goudey produced a 96 card set that was endorsed by two players, Lou Gehrig and Chuck Klein. The 1934 Goudey set is sometimes called the "Lou Gehrig" set. Interestingly, there are no Babe Ruth cards in the set. The Hank Greenberg rookie card is in this set. 1938 set In 1938, Goudey produced a 48 card set, also known as the "Heads-Up" set. The cards were numbered from 241 to 288, thus looking like Goudey was trying to extend the 1933 Goudey set. The first 24 cards in the set depicts pictures of players heads attached to a cartoonish body in baseball action. The next 24 cards in the set depicts the same players and the same poses. The difference is the next 24 cards include small cartoonish characters playing baseball along with captions. Joe Dimaggio, Jimmie Foxx, Hank Greenberg and Bob Feller are the big stars in this set. Canadian Goudey Similar cards as the 1933 and 1934 Goudey sets were also released in Canada by the Goudey-owned World Wide Gum Co, of Granby, Quebec. They are sometimes known as Canadian Goudey sets. There were 94 and 96 cards in these sets, respectively. The 1933 World Wide Gum set was released with two different backs, one with both French and English, and the other with only English. There has not been definitive proof, but one theory is that the French-English backs were sold in Quebec and the English-only backs were sold in Ontario.

Herb Pennock From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Herb Pennock Pitcher Born: February 10, 1894 Kennett Square, Pennsylvania Died: January 30, 1948 (aged 53) New York City, New York Batted: Switch Threw: Left MLB debut May 14, 1912 for the Philadelphia Athletics Last MLB appearance August 27, 1934 for the Boston Red Sox Career statistics Win–loss record 240–162 Earned run average 3.60 Strikeouts 1,227 Teams Philadelphia Athletics (1912–1915) Boston Red Sox (1915–1917, 1919–1922) New York Yankees (1923–1933) Boston Red Sox (1934) Career highlights and awards 4× World Series champion (1923, 1927, 1928, 1932) Member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction 1948 Vote 77.69% (eighth ballot) Herbert Jefferis Pennock (February 10, 1894 – January 30, 1948) was an American professional baseball pitcher. He played in Major League Baseball from 1912 through 1933. He is best known for his time spent with the star-studded New York Yankee teams of the mid to late 1920s and early 1930s. He batted and threw left-handed. Connie Mack signed Pennock to his Philadelphia Athletics in 1912. After using Pennock sparingly, and questioning his competitive drive, Mack sold Pennock to the Boston Red Sox in 1915. After returning from military service in 1919, Pennock became a regular contributor for the Red Sox. The Yankees acquired Pennock from the Red Sox after the 1922 season, and he served as a key member of the pitching staff as the Yankees won four World Series championships during his tenure with the team. After retiring as a player, Pennock served as a coach and farm system director for the Red Sox, and as general manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Pennock was regarded as one of the greatest left-handed pitchers in baseball history. Mack later called his sale of Pennock to the Red Sox his greatest mistake. Pennock died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1948; later that year, he was posthumously inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Early life Pennock was born on February 10, 1894 in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. His father, Theodore Pennock, and mother Mary Louise Pennock (née Sharp) were of Scot-Irish and Quaker descent. Herb was the youngest of four children.[1] Pennock attended a Friends' School and Cedarcroft Boarding School, where he played for the baseball team. After struggling as a first baseman, with a weak offensive output and throwing arm that resulted in curved throws, his Cedarcroft coach converted Pennock into a pitcher.[1] Playing career Philadelphia Athletics Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, signed Pennock in 1912 to play for his collegiate team based in Atlantic City. Pennock's father insisted that he sign under an alias in order to protect his collegiate eligibility. Pennock threw a no-hitter against a traveling Negro league baseball team, and Mack promoted him to the Athletics.[1] Mack intended for Pennock to be one of the prospects who would replace star pitchers Eddie Plank, Chief Bender, and Jack Coombs.[2] Pennock made his major league debut on May 14 with the Athletics, allowing one hit in four innings pitched.[1] He was the youngest person to play in the American League (AL) that season.[3] Former major leaguer Mike Grady, a neighbor of Pennock's in Kennett Square, took Pennock under his wing, while Bender taught Pennock to throw a screwball.[1] Pennock missed most of the 1913 season with an illness.[1] In 1914, Pennock posted a 11–4 win-loss record with a 2.79 earned run average (ERA) in 151 2⁄3 innings pitched for the Athletics, and pitched three scoreless innings in the 1914 World Series, which the Athletics lost to the Boston Braves. Mack let Bender go after the season, naming Pennock his Opening Day starting pitcher in 1915. On Opening Day, Pennock threw a one-hit complete game shutout against the Boston Red Sox.[1] However, as the Athletics struggled, Pennock's nonchalant playing style drew Mack's ire. Concluding that Pennock "lacked ambition", Mack sold Pennock to the Red Sox for the waiver price.[1] Mack later regarded this sale as his greatest mistake.[4] Boston Red Sox With a deep pitching staff in place, the Red Sox loaned Pennock to the Providence Grays of the International League in August for the remainder of the 1915 season.[1][5] In 1916, he split the season between the Red Sox and the Buffalo Bisons, also in the International League. With Buffalo, Pennock pitched to a 1.67 ERA, as Buffalo won the league pennant.[6] Though the Red Sox won the 1915 and 1916 World Series, Pennock did not appear in either series.[7][8] Pitching in minor league baseball, Pennock began to regain confidence.[1] However, Boston manager Jack Barry used Pennock sparingly in the 1917 season, and Pennock enlisted in the United States Navy in 1918.[9] Pennock pitched for a team fielded by the Navy, defeating a team composed of members of the United States Army in an exhibition for George VI, the King of England, in Stamford Bridge. After the game, Ed Barrow, the new manager of the Red Sox, signed Pennock to a new contract after promising to use him regularly during the 1919 season.[1] Pennock received only one start apiece in the months of April and May, as the Red Sox relied on George Dumont, Bill James, and Bullet Joe Bush, leading Pennock to threaten to quit in late-May unless Barrow fulfilled his earlier promise to Pennock. Barrow continued to use Pennock regularly after Memorial Day,[1] and Pennock finished the season with a 16–8 win-loss record and a 2.71 ERA in 219 innings pitched. He served as the team's ace pitcher in 1920, but subsequently settled in as the Red Sox' third starter.[1] After the 1922 campaign, in which he went 10–17, and had seven wild pitches, leading the AL,[10] the New York Yankees began to negotiate with the Red Sox to acquire Pennock.[11] The Yankees traded Norm McMillan, George Murray, and Camp Skinner to the Red Sox for Pennock that offseason.[12] New York Yankees Pennock pitched to a 19–6 win-loss record in 1923, his first season with the Yankees, leading the American League (AL) in winning percentage (.760) and finishing sixth in wins.[13] Pitching in the 1923 World Series, Pennock defeated the New York Giants in game two, on October 11, to end their eight-game World Series winning streak.[1][14] He recorded a save in securing the Yankees' win in game four, and pitched to the win in game six on one day of rest, clinching the Yankees' first World Series championship.[1][14] Umpire Billy Evans called it "the greatest pitching performance I have ever seen," as Pennock "had nothing."[1][15] In 1924, he pitched to a 21–9 win-loss record with a 2.83 ERA while striking out a career-high 101 batters. His win total was second in the AL, behind Walter Johnson, while his ERA was third behind Johnson and Tom Zachary, and he finished fourth in strikeouts behind Johnson, Howard Ehmke, and teammate Bob Shawkey.[16] Pennock's 277 innings pitched and 1.220 walks plus hits per inning pitched (WHIP) ratio led the AL in 1925, while his 2.96 ERA was second-best, behind Stan Coveleski.[17] In 1926 he posted a career-high 23 wins, finishing second in the AL to George Uhle. He again led the AL in WHIP (1.265), and issued the fewest walks per nine innings pitched (1.453).[18] During the pennant race, The Sporting News called Pennock the "best left-hander in the majors".[1] Pennock earned the wins in game one and game five of the 1926 World Series. He finished game seven of the series, which the Yankees lost to the St. Louis Cardinals.[19] Pennock pitched a complete game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in game three of the 1927 World Series, not allowing a hit until the eighth inning. Pennock's performance drew praise from teammate Babe Ruth.[20] The Yankees swept the series from Pittsburgh.[21] After pitching a three-hit shutout against the Red Sox on August 12, 1928, he missed the remainder of the season, including the 1928 World Series, with an arm injury. His five shutouts and 0.085 home runs per nine innings pitched led the AL. His 2.56 ERA trailed only Garland Braxton, while his 17 wins tied for eighth place.[22] Though the Yankees defeated the Cardinals in the 1928 World Series,[23] the Yankees' starting rotation without Pennock was likened to "a three-stringed ukulele."[1] In 1929, Pennock saw his pitching time and pitching quality diminish. Over the rest of his career, he never posted more than 189 innings pitched and didn't see his ERA drop below 4.00. He suffered from bouts of neuritis in 1929 and 1930.[24] Pennock won his 200th career game during the 1929 season, becoming the third left-handed pitcher to reach that mark.[1] He led the AL in walks per nine innings pitched in 1930 (1.151)[25] and 1931 (1.426).[26] Pennock pitched four innings of relief against the Chicago Cubs in the 1932 World Series, recording two saves.[27] In 1933, serving exclusively as a relief pitcher, Pennock had a 7–4 win-loss record in 23 appearances.[28] After the 1933 season, the Yankees honored Pennock with a testimonial dinner on January 6, 1934, and then gave him his release.[1] Return to Boston Eddie Collins, a former teammate with the Athletics now serving as the general manager of the Red Sox, signed Pennock for the 1934 season.[28] In his last season pitching in the major leagues, Pennock served as a relief pitcher for the Red Sox.[1] Pennock retired with a career record of 240 wins, 162 losses, and a 3.60 ERA. Pennock pitched in five World Series, one with Philadelphia and four with New York. He was a member of four World Series championship teams. In World Series play, Pennock amassed a 5–0 career win-loss record with three saves, becoming the second pitcher to win five World Series games, after Jack Coombs.[29] Pennock was a part of seven World Series championship teams (1913, 1915, 1916, 1923, 1927, 1928, and 1932), though he played in four World Series' as a member of the winning team. Many, including Mack, consider Pennock among the greatest left-handed pitchers of all time.[1][4] Post-playing career Pennock served as general manager of the Charlotte Hornets, a Red Sox' farm team of the Piedmont League.[30] He returned to the Red Sox in 1936, serving as the first base and pitching coach under manager Joe Cronin.[31] He served in this role through the 1938 season. In 1939, Pennock served as the Assistant Supervisor of Boston's minor league system, reporting to Evans. Pennock succeeded Evans as Director of Minor League Operations late in the 1940 season.[1][32] In December 1943, R. R. M. Carpenter, Jr., the new owner of the Philadelphia Phillies, hired Pennock as his general manager,[33] after receiving a recommendation from Mack. Carpenter gave Pennock a lifetime contract. Pennock filled Carpenter's duties when the team's owner was drafted into service during World War II in 1944. As general manager, Pennock changed the team's name to the "Blue Jays", and invested $1 million into players who would become known as the "Whiz Kids", who won the National League pennant in 1950, including Curt Simmons and Willie Jones.[1] He also created a "Grandstand Managers Club", the first in baseball history, allowing fans to give feedback to the team,[34] and advocated for the repeal of the Bonus Rule.[35] However, he opposed racial integration in baseball,[1] and threatened to boycott a 1947 game between the Phillies and Brooklyn Dodgers if Jackie Robinson, who the Dodgers signed to break the color barrier, played.[36] In 1948, at the age of 53, Pennock collapsed in the lobby of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel as a result of a cerebral hemorrhage. He was pronounced dead upon his arrival at Midtown Hospital.[37] Pennock had been healthy, even inviting friends to join him at Madison Square Garden to attend a boxing match.[38] Honors Pennock was honored with "Herb Pennock Day" on April 30, 1944 in Kennett Square.[1] Weeks after his death, Pennock was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.[39] An attempt to erect a statue in Kennett Square in his honor was blocked due to his support of segregation in baseball.[36] Fred Heimach, a teammate of Pennock, once called him the smartest ball player he knew.[40] In 1981, Lawrence Ritter and Donald Honig included Pennock in their book The 100 Greatest Baseball Players of All Time. He was inducted in the International League Hall of Fame in 1948.[6] Noted baseball photographer Charles M. Conlon considered Pennock one of his favorite subjects to photograph.[41] Personal Pennock was nicknamed "the Squire of Kennett Square."[2][42] He married Esther M. Freck, his high school sweetheart and the younger sister of a childhood friend, on October 28, 1915. Esther often attended spring training and traveled with her husband's team during the season. Together, the couple had a daughter, Jane (born 1920), and a son, Joe (born 1925). Jane later married Eddie Collins, Jr..[43] While a member of the Yankees, Pennock rented an apartment on Grand Concourse in The Bronx, where his wife and children stayed while the Yankees played their home games.[1] Pennock was a proficient horse rider.[44] He also raised hounds, and silver foxes for their pelts.[42] He also grew flowers and vegetables on his farm.[2] Product: Single, Era: Pre-WWII (Pre-1942), League: Major Leagues, Card Manufacturer: Goudey, Original/Reprint: Original, Year: 1933, Player: Herb Pennock, Team: New York Yankees, Country of Manufacture: United States
