(LOT 450)
1933 Goudey #29 Jimmy Foxx PSA 8 NM-MT - Highest PSA Example!

DOUBLE X!!! Jimmie Foxx never looked better than in this astonishing PSA 8 NM-MT 1933 Goudey offering that, along with thirteen other examples, sits at the top of the PSA Pop Chart 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 was so appropriately 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, Massachusetts chose the classic Charles M. Conlon batting pose to represent both of his ‘33 Goudey subjects.

Obviously, the highlight of this world-class gem is the breathtaking image, which provides unparalleled aesthetics as Foxx has most likely crushed another horsehide sphere towards the furthest confines of another ballpark. He would accomplish this glorious feat 534 times in his remarkable career, with one of his greatest seasons being 1933, when, as previously stated, he claimed the American League's revered Triple Crown. His spectacular batting feats, including 1,922 runs batted in (including 13 consecutive campaigns of 100+ RBIs) and a .325 lifetime batting average forever place him as one of our National Pastime's greatest all-time hitters. The inspiring illustration literally emanates a 3D effect, ably assisted by the radiant yellow background that brings XX's legendary batting pose to life.

The fine centering does reveal a modest partiality towards the left 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. Since 2019, several PSA 8 Foxx examples have pushed the $50K mark, with the celebrated combination of a NM-MT assessment on a Jimmie Foxx 90-year-old gum card more than quenching any hobbyist's' collecting thirst. Indeed, this scarce for the grade museum-worthy masterpiece, similar to Foxx's unparalleled power, proudly stands at the top of the charts and is destined to become one of the centerpiece attractions of any world-class collection!
