1930s cards

Post by sabrjay on Wed Sep 09, 2009 12:42 pm

Are you a collector of 1930s cards? If so, what do you collect and why?

I collect the Delong and Diamond Star sets. I've always love the art deco style from that era. If I could afford it, I would pursue the George C Miller set.

I collect the '33 Goudey set along with many, many other folks. Specifically, I am collecting the HOFers from it. Why? It is historically an important set, so that plays into it, but I enjoy it not only for its design, but for the vastness of HOFers that are represented in the set. As several here know, I also collect E107 HOFers... for some of the same reasons - namely the number of HOFers represented in (what I consider to be) an important set. Putting together the HOFers in those 2 sets gives me a very nice cross section of all the HOFers with only the Lajoie tribute card as a HOFer represented in both sets. Not all deadball HOFers are represented in one of those two sets, but the remaining ones are few enough that I can sprinkle in specific cards that I would like to fill in the holes. (i.e. T204 Johnson, an E103 Cobb, etc.)

To me, the '33 Goudey set fit the bill for knocking out many, many HOFers in one set. It also is not a difficult set to collect. That gives me reprieve from the frustrations (and expense) of collecting the E107 HOFer set. I like the Diamond Star and Delong sets too appearance wise, but am not a huge fan of Tattoo Orbit. As a side note, I could be convinced to collect the Delongs since I like them so much. My exposure to George C. Miller was limited until I realized their shockingly high value due to the REA auction last April. I like them, but not enough to chase them at this point.

You make a good point, between the e107 and 1933 Goudey sets you cover a very significant portion of the players that found in the HOF. You also get the side benefit with the e107 set that most of the cards are the player's first appearance on a card.

I've owned my fair share of 30's type cards....Butter Cream, R300 GCM, Delong, Tatoo Orbit, Eclipse Import, Diamond Stars, US Caramel, etc.

Seems like the US Caramel set is very seldomly talked about.

I only own a few right now, but one of those happens to be my favorite 30's card of them all:
