(LOT 25)
1933 Goudey #29 Jimmie Foxx PSA 8 NM-MT – Highest Graded PSA Example!

THE BEAST!!! Jimmie Foxx's mighty swing is displayed in quintessential fashion via this astonishing PSA 8 NM-MT 1933 Goudey offering that along with thirteen other examples, sits at the top of the PSA Population report as the foremost Foxx specimen! Ironically, the year this card was issued, Foxx would claim the American League Triple Crown by belting 48 dingers, knocking in 163 runs and posting a sensational .356 batting average via his 204 safeties. He was now the toast of the town, with the City of Brotherly Love worshiping this supernatural slugger who so appropriately was nicknamed "The Beast" due to his muscular physique and uncanny power. He is one of the handful of sluggers that belted a home run into Yankee Stadium's LEFT-FIELD upper deck, and it is fitting that the prestigious Goudey Gum Company of Cambridge, Mass. chose the classic Charles M. Conlon batting pose to represent both of his '33 Goudey subjects.

Obviously, the highlight of this world-class gem, the breathtaking image provides unparalleled aesthetics as Foxx has most likely crushed another horsehide sphere towards the furthest confines of another ballpark. The inspiring illustration literally emanates a 3D effect, ably assisted by the radiant yellow background that brings Double X's legendary batting pose to life. The extremely well-centered illustration only reveals the slightest partiality towards the upper edge, and the bright hues, vivid BIG LEAGUE CHEWING GUM caption in the bold red text box, pinpoint corners and near-impeccable surfaces all combine to substantiate the seldom surfacing PSA 8 assessment. The celebrated combination of a PSA 8 NM-MT grade on a Jimmie Foxx 89-year-old gum card should more than quench any esteemed hobbyist's collecting thirst, with this scarce for the grade museum worthy masterpiece anxiously awaiting a new home in any world-class collection!
