(LOT 566)
1933 Goudey #128 Chuck Klein PSA 8 NM-MT – Only 4 PSA Examples Graded Higher!

PACK-FRESH KLEIN!!!... One of the Goudey Gum Company's most prestigious subjects in their 1933 set is the #128 card for hard-hitting Phillies outfielder Chuck Klein who just happened to capture the National League's Triple Crown in 1933. Indeed, the HOF right-fielder would lead the Senior Circuit with 28 homers, 120 runs batted in and a spectacular .368 batting average. For 17 years with the Phillies, Cubs and Pirates, this imposing slugger terrorized National league hurlers, with his finest campaigns realized in the City of Brotherly Love. He ended his career with a spectacular resume that includes a .320 lifetime batting average, 300 round-trippers, a 1932 NL MVP award, the aforementioned 1933 Triple Crown, and leading the Senior Circuit in homers four different seasons.

On July 10, 1936, Klein managed to belt four home runs in a single game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, becoming only the fourth player at the time to accomplish that amazing feat. Synonymous to Chuck Klein's remarkable achievements is this outstanding PSA 8 NM-MT 1933 Goudey #128 offering that has only been bested by a meager four examples! There no appropriate adjectives to effectively define the awe-inspiring condition of this Klein "blazer" that depicts a breathtaking left-handed batting image of the Cooperstown Inductee. A seemingly flawless array of tranquil violet, green and yellow background hues steal the show. Impeccable surfaces, super clean borders, a faultless perimeter and four pinpoint corners complete this museum worthy masterpiece that has stubbornly defied father-time over the past 90 years.
