1933 Goudey produced a 240 card set, also called Big League Chewing Gum

The 1933 Goudey Baseball cards were issued in baseball packs and


were known to be the first baseball gum cards. The cards were sold in packs wrapped with bubble gum. The set is considered one of the "Big Three" classic baseball card sets, along with the T206 and 1952 Topps sets.

The players included in this set are (4) Babe Ruth,(card #149 shown at this link) (2) Lou Gehrig, (2) Rogers Hornsby, Napoleon Lajoie(see below), Jimmy Foxx, Tris Speaker, Mel Ott, Eddie Collins, Bill Dickey and many other great players of this era.

The originals of this set would cost you thousands of dollars, but you can obtain beautiful reprints of this set for a fraction of the originals. Now everyone can afford these cards and have you own piece of baseball card history with the greatest players of all time.

One of the rarest baseball cards from a mainstream set is card #106 Nap Lajoie. It was not originally issued with the set. No collector could complete their set in 1933 from packs. In 1934, they issued card #106 for the 1933 set with retired player Napoleon Lajoie. Collectors that sent letters to the Goudey Gum Company complaining about the lack of a #106 card received it in the mail. Few were sent out, but those that did are generally in better condition than other cards of the set due to the lesser chance of handling. The #106 Napoleon Lajoie is known as one of the "Big Three" baseball cards along with two cards from the T206 set depicting Honus Wagner and Eddie Plank.
