(b. December 6, 1903 - d. August 6, 1946)
The second baseman on the "Murderer's Row" Yankee teams of the 1920s and '30s, Lazzeri combined power, high average, and slick fielding. A career .292 hitter who socked 178 homers, "Poosh 'Em Up" topped the .300 mark five times, and hit .354 in 1929.

Comments: I first purchased a PSA 2 1933 Goudey. Then in February, 2003 I won a 1933 Goudey PSA 5 on eBay - sold it on my website for a nice profit in July, 2003 (along with a 1933 Goudey Goslin PSA 5 and 1933 Goudey Terry PSA 8). I then picked up a PSA 4 example with another eBay win in August, 2003 which also sold on my site. I won another copy, a PSA 5, in December, 2003. In November, 2005 I swapped out the Goudey for a World Wide Gum example when I purchased a PSA 6 from seller and hobby friend King Yao via the Net54 chatroom. I've missed out on a few chances to upgrade - losing out on the same SGC 84 example that's been offered twice (2009, 2010) and a PSA 8 card in a 2008 Mastro auction. Will keep trying…

Description: Also known as "Canadian Goudeys", this 94-card set drew heavily on its U.S. contemporary. Card fronts are identical to the '33 Goudeys and the backs are nearly so. The first 52 cards in the set carry the same card numbers as their American counterparts, while cards #53-94 have different numbers than the U.S. version. Card backs can be found pritned entirely in English, or in English and French; the former being somewhat scarcer. Cards measure approximately 2-3/8" X 2-7/8".
