1933 Goudey #211 Hack Wilson PSA 9 MINT – Highest Graded Example!

TAKE A HACK!!! Pop quiz: What does this amazing PSA 9 Mint '33 Goudey Hack Wilson offering have in common with Wilson's momentous 1930 campaign? The correct answer is that they both stand tall as pinnacle achievements with this PSA 9 Mint wonder and Wilson's 191 R.B.I.s in 1930 as the best of the best! Indeed, no player including Ruth, Gehrig, Aaron, Mays, Foxx, Williams, Mantle, Bonds, etc. have ever matched Wilson's premier R.B.I. mark, and along with a meager five specimens, not a single Hack Wilson #211 Goudey subject has ever been awarded a Gem Mint 10 assessment. Cooperstown Inductee Hack Wilson slugged his way to baseball immortality when in 1930 playing for the Chicago Cubs, he hit 56 home runs and accumulated the aforementioned 191 R.B.I. mark, the latter still standing as an MLB record. The barrel-chested slugger's great career was winding down when his 1933 Goudey #211 subject was issued, with Wilson retiring after the 1934 campaign with an impressive .307 batting average and formidable .940 OPS.

Arguably Wilson's most coveted cardboard issue, his 1933 Goudey subject exhibits an awe-inspiring batting image of the mighty power-hitter, with a cool green near-immaculate background literally bringing the imposing batting pose to life. Extremely rare near-perfect centering is one of the key highlights, with the dazzling white borders, pristine surfaces and scintillating corner tips all combining to justify the pack-fresh mint grade. To place the sheer wonder of this miraculous assessment in perspective, PSA has currently encapsulated some 94,000+ '33 Goudey subjects, with a microscopic 0.2% reflecting the near-impossible "9 MINT" grade. Courtesy of the world-class Manny Gordon collection, you are now granted the golden opportunity of capturing one of those mint examples representing one of Cooperstown's most popular inductees. While Hack Wilson's 12-year career came to an abrupt end with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1934, his record setting single season R.B.I. mark is forever etched in stone, synonymous with this virtually immaculate Goudey blazer that will forever retain its factory-issued mint attributes courtesy of its final resting place in the illustrious PSA holder!
