Adding Another Burleigh Grimes 1933 Goudey To The PC

I recently added my third 1933 Goudey Burleigh Grimes card to my PC and this one comes to me from eBay, $10 delivered. It has clearly seen better days but that's really the only way I'm able to add a card from a Hall of Famer from the most popular set of the 1930's for a ten spot. 


For the uninitiated, Grimes pitched for 19 seasons from 1916-1934 and he would be elected to the Hall of Fame in 1964 by the Veteran's Committee. He was the last pitcher allowed to throw a spitball after he was grandfathered to use it after the pitch was banned in 1920.


With there being so many 1933 Goudey cards that were essentially reprinted in the 1934 set, it is a shame that Grimes wasn't included in Goudey's second most famous set.

Now that's what I call a thing of beauty. Congratulations on securing that for $10. I'd buy that card for that price any day of the week.
