(LOT 38)
1932 U.S. Caramel #23 Jimmy Foxx PSA 8 NM-MT - HIGHEST GRADED!

ALL OR NOTHING!!! This was the type of hitter Foxx was for much of his career, a home run or strikeout kind of guy. However, this was highly successful for the Athletics and Red Sox first baseman, as he led the American League in home runs on four occasions, during the era of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig's offensive assault on AL pitchers, but also led the league in Ks seven times. But nobody counts his strikeouts; Jimmie Foxx is remembered for his power as he crushed 534 home runs, won three MVP awards (the first player to win three), and led the Philadelphia A's to three World Series, winning in 1929 & '30. Offered is his 1932 U.S. Caramel #23 James (Jimmy) Foxx PSA 8 NM-MT issue. This beautiful card features the 24-year-old Foxx bust against a bright reddish-orange background framed within four white borders, favoring only slightly to the bottom right. The back displays clear and concise text. This one of ten is the highest graded copy in the hobby, sure to upgrade even the finest of gatherings!
