1933 Goudey Baseball Cards

Goudeys 1933 Big League Gum set initiated a Golden Age for collectibles. The cards most recognizable feature is their 2-3/8in by 2-7/8in size (much larger than their predecessors considerably narrower dimensions), as well as colorful, artistic illustrations that set a modern standard in terms of eye-appeal. The issue consisted of 239 cards, with a 240th entry the remarkably scarce Napoleon Lajoie #106 - produced in 1934 in response to consumer outcry and mailed to fans only upon request. Prominent among the 1933 series content is an abundance of Hall of Famers. Highlights include four different Ruth portrayals, with #144 double-printed and thus found in packs at twice the rate of lesser figures. There are three cards of Joe Cronin #s 63, 109 and 189 and two of Jimmy Foxx #s 29 and 154, as well as two each of Hornsby, Hubbell and other luminaries. The 1933 Goudey cards were printed on ten different press sheets containing 24 cards apiece, and the subjects found on the first two of those sheets Low Numbers are a bit scarcer than the issues other entries. Goudeys 1933 cards were also printed on thicker cardboard stock than their tobacco card predecessors, with that thickness establishing the template for modern day cards.

The longest thrown ball was accomplished in 1957 and still stands to this day. It was Glen Edwards Gorbous, a Canadian who was in the Majors from 1955-1957. The total distance of travel before the baseball hit the ground was 445 feet 10 inches! Breaking the old record by 9 inches that was set in 1956. Gorbous had a stature like Tim Lincecum, standing 6 feet 2 inches tall and only 175 pounds. They say the ball left his hand at an estimated 120mph. It would take a lot of long toss to beat this record.
