Al, Did you contact the seller for more info.
Like where they originate?
were there any others (as you stated there should be 12 not 10)
& why GAI was the grader of choice, perhaps other grading companies
turned him down to slab em for lack of evidence of what these are.

Could be an interesting find after 70 years

Jay, I did send the seller a note. As a guy who has a big chunk of his hobby time (and money) invested in 1938 Goudeys, I am extremely curious about these. I'm dubious about them, but there are enough interesting details that I'm not ready to completely write them off yet.

-Al

I think you would have to have some pretty impressive accompaning evidence to support a new find when they are obviously paste jobs and the years dont match up. Whether this was done in 1938 or it was done recently to deceive, the end result is the same, these are just paper photos glued to 35 goudey cards unless you find something with it from Goudey saying "This is a test issue" or something they cant really be considered anything else in my opinion.

....but on that Danning "card" you can see the Danning front was pasted on top of one of those 4-in-1 cards. Indeed, you can see the top of the two top boxes at the top edge of where the Danning cover was pasted.

Al - let us know the info that the seller shares with you.
Regarding GAI, I would imagine Mike Baker would authenticate
& grade this batch due to its importance in the hobby.
And save the 1969 Topps commons for the other graders.
Hopefully he'll chime in to this thread.

This is one of those cases in which the answer seems so obvious (two cards pasted together) you wonder what the grader saw -- that we're missing -- that caused him to not reject the cards. Common sense tells you there must be more to this ...

I'm with Rhys 100% on this one. I think this is just a mistake and it shouldn't have been slabbed.

I see the blue lines of the 35 Goudey below! How can that be graded??? We have to be missing something. GAI has some good people there and I can't imagine they would slab pasted together crap and label it some proof card. I am swaying over to the Rhys - Sloate arena but for now, I want to give Global the benefit of doubt. Dan.
