How is this a 1938 Goudey proof when Hubbel is not in the 1938 Goudey set?? Dan.

You missed it, it's a "Goudy" proof, not a Goudey proof. I've never seen it. Not sure what that is.

I don't know what makes it a proof, what dates it at 1938, or how they determined it was produced by Goudey. This is completely irresponsible.

Seller has 10 different cards from this "set" on Ebay.

I wonder what they really are.


Maybe someone could call GAI... maybe next Monday when they are open.

He has Slaughter which started in 1938 I believe and Hubbell who ended in the early 1940s. So maybe they are correct? How can they slab that like that???? I hope they have some information that I am missing. Dan. The backs favor a 1935 Gooooody not a 1938.

The back refers to Mickey Cochrane which makes the whole thing even more of
a mystery.

Why did GAI assume it was from Goudey and from 1938.

We should hear from the Chief Grader at GAI

Two clues to how they dated it. Slaughter was a rookie in 1938 and it says that on the card. And Gee (Gerald) Walker was traded before the 1938 season and it says that on the card.

So the earliest it could be is 1938. Could it be later, or a reproduction, or a fake? Who knows.

Great points Jim, and how do we know it is Goudey? Is that on any of the cards? I didn't look too closely, running out to golf.

Bruce is correct though. The puzzle back is Mickey Cochrane (The 10 different cards only show 4 different backs.) and Cochrane retired after the 1937 season. I guess you could presume that the combination of Slaughter, Walker, and Cochrane narrowed it to 1938, but Goudey??? (or even Goudy)
