Default 1933 & 1934 Goudey Attic Find

The grandchildren of a former Goudey employee opened a safe in his attic and found 150+ cards from 1933 and 1934, including two 1933 Ruths, a 1933 Gehrig, 2 1934 Gehrig, and TWO of the 1933 Lajoie.

Video of the cards after being prepped for grading by SGC can be found here:

What a cool find. I'd be happy to find just one Lajoie in an attic. Hell, I'd be happy to find a T42 common in my attic...

There was another find posted here recently with the story linked that included photos. I made the same observation. The cards were so pristine as to look fake.

If I was ever to find something in an attic that old, it would be a rock.

Very sweet looking cards.

Let's be serious... where is the video when they open up that safe? Don't tell me no one has access to a phone to record this given there are thousands of videos out there opening up old safes.

So.. the employee was able to keep two Lajoie that were supposed to be by redemption only. That pretty much confirm how many logoman 1/1 employees can have for their collections nowaday.

Why SGC? Check out last night's Memory Lane PSA Goudey prices.

They’ll probably come back in SGC A slabs with “evidence of trimming.”

Turn around time from PSA is too slow? Also everyone is saying it is so tough to get high grades from PSA now??

In fact, it was a mistake those cards got into Heritage's hand to begin with. If they were in Goldin's hand they would get better grades from PSA.

I assume you are sarcastic here. Somehow I think for two Lajoies and Ruths and with Heritage as submitter, PSA would do expedited grading.

Dunno why not PSA but presently both are grading pretty tough, from what I am hearing. Anyway, Heritage prefers SGC over PSA for all of their grading.

So were these cards taken or stolen by the employee and now his relatives are reaping the benefits of this deed. I didn't know employees of Goudey could take home card # 106 Lajoie etc. Wonder what his position was in the company ?

Yes, it's possible an employee took a few penny cards home that he was not supposed to 88 years ago.

Right...just knowing that one day his descendants would make out like bandits in the sports card surge during the next global pandemic of 2020-2022. Thief!!!!

I know someone who opened up 32 Upper Deck Hockey cases and he couldn't even pull a single Brett Hull autographed insert and it was numbered to 2500 back then. Definitely some of those employees have an upper hand! Let's get back to the discussion of those logoman and 1/1 inserts. LOL
