(LOT 359)
1933 Sport Kings #38 Bobby Jones PSA 8 NM-MT

BOBBY JONES!!! The 1933 Goudey Sport Kings set resides as one of the most popular pre-war issues in the hobby. Encompassing 48 subjects, it includes sports celebrities from a myriad of different sports including baseball, football, hockey, golf, etc. One of those immortal golf legends is the iconic Hall of Famer Bobby Jones, and it is his "jaw dropping" subject that is presented here in a PSA 8 holder; with only 5 PSA examples graded higher. Jones is a charter member of Golf's Hall of Fame (1974).

Every avid golf collector actively seeks his 1933 Sport Kings card, and this example's near-immaculate image is a perfect testament for the legendary golfer. The flawless powder blue background effectively projects the Jones classic golfer swing image, and his bright facial hues provide a truly realistic aura to the world-class illustration. Near-perfect "top/bottom" centering is only slightly offset by the image favoring the right edge between super clean borders. No glaring surface blemishes are evident, with the verso revealing extremely clean bold green text. One of the most coveted pre-war sport cards, this remarkable Bobby Jones offering is synonymous with his undisputed golfing legacy, and would immediately augment any serious collection to a grandeur level!
