The key rarity to the 1933 Goudey baseball set is #106 Napoleon Lajoie. Unissued in the original packs, Lajoie's #106 was likely a ploy to get youngsters to buy more cards to complete their sets. If you wrote the Goudey company and complained, you received this for your efforts. You can't find a higher-graded Nap Lajoie #106 card. This specimen was graded PSA 9 MINT and looks just the way it was printed in late 1933. This green background gem features the bust portrait of Lajoie perfectly centered with beautiful sharp corners. Even the reverse looks as if it were made yesterday with its beautiful, crisp, dark green printing. An epic rarity from the benchmark baseball set of the 1930s, and one of the most important cards of the 20th Century.
