Astonishing 1933 Goudey #236 George "Kiddo" Davis PSA 9 MINT - "POP 2"; Highest Graded PSA Example!
POP 2 MINT DAVIS!!! Certainly a scenario whereby a "common" player is no ordinary common, this absolutely breathtaking PSA 9 MINT 1933 Goudey #236 George Davis offering has joined forces with only a single other specimen as the finest of its kind! A remarkable keepsake from the legendary Goudey set, the irrefutable rarity of this PSA 9 offering is justified by PSA's population report that currently lists some 94,000+ '33 Goudey subjects, with a microscopic 0.2% reflecting the elusive "9 MINT" assessment.
Nicknamed "Kiddo" because as a kid he typically played baseball with children who were a few years older than him, Davis played with five teams throughout his eight-year MLB career, most notably the New York Giants where the young centerfielder ably assisted in capturing their 1933 World Series title. His legacy forever lingers on with this world-class "Mint" offering that portrays an extremely stoic portrait pose of the Giants superb centerfielder, with his icy blue eyes dominating the illustration. Mint features include immaculate surfaces, razor-sharp edging, extreme right-angled corners and sparkling hues. In fact, had it not been for the image modestly favoring the lower right edges, this offering just might be residing in a "10 Gem Mint" holder!
