PSA MINT 9
Fall 2014 Auction
Lot Number: 162
1937 O-Pee-Chee # 107
Graded by PSA as MINT 9
Starting Bid: $2,500
Issued in 1937 by O-Pee-Chee, this very attractive die-cut set includes 40 cards, all featuring American League players. The text on the reverse of the cards is printed in both English and French. The set shares design characteristics with National Chicle's 1934-36 Batter-Up issue. The offered example features beloved Tigers Hall-of-Fame slugger Hank Greenberg.
Greenberg was one of the premier power hitters of his generation. During his 13-year career (1930, '33-47), he led the American League in home runs and RBI's four times each. His total of 58 home runs in 1938 is tied for fourth highest in the pre-steroids era. Greenberg was the American League's MVP twice, was a two-time World Series champion with the Tigers, and made five All Star Game appearances.
This is the one and only example graded MINT 9 by PSA, with none higher! In essentially right-out-of-the-pack condition, this card has pinpoint corners, a smooth unblemished surface, bold printing, and a crystal-clear image of Greenberg.
