2009 Goudey 4-in-1 Checklist

Like the short prints, I couldn't find a checklist for the 1935 4-in-1 insert set anywhere. Or, more accurately, I can't find any checklists for any '09 Goudey anywhere. I had to put together this checklist by hand by searching for 4-in-1 auctions on eBay and typing out who was on each card. Yeah, I probably could have navigated through Beckett or Upper Deck's byzantine websites for the checklist, but that would have been far more frustrating. Besides, you learn things on eBay.

The set is 100 cards and is differentiated from the main set by the numbering which includes the "35" year number as a prefix. The original 1935 set can be found with blue and red borders. Upper Deck takes this a bit further and has four different border flavors. The most common border color appears to be red. Blue borders are more scarce than red, but are still fairly plentiful. Green bordered cards (which weren't in the '35 set) seem to be a lot tougher than either red or blue, but aren't serial numbered. Finally there are black bordered cards numbered to 21 copies. Obviously, these are the toughest. Thankfully there are no white or gold or plaid bordered cards numbered to single digits that I could find in my searches.

The cards are inserted 1:2 hobby packs according to the sell sheet. I'm not sure what the idds are in retail packs, but I've getten 4 packs and pulled 2 4-in1s so it's not much different most likely. I looked around for some box breaks to see what was actually coming out of hobby boxes and found a couple that listed the 4-in-1s. Here's breaks from Saints of the Cheap Seats and here's some guy on a forum. Interestingly, both boxes had 9 red borders, 2 blue borders and 1 green bordered cards. Since there's 18 cards in a box, the chances of pulling a 4-in-1 are a little better than 1:2 if this ratio holds up over the whole release. Odds would be 1:2 for red, 1:9 for blue and 1:18 for green. Collectors frustrated over yet another needless parallel should take heart in the fact that vintage Goudey collectors pretty much ignore the border color of the '35 set and consider it complete when all thirty six cards are found. Maniacs advanced collectors can still feel free to collect the 400 card master rainbow parallel set if they choose.

Thanks for putting together all of this information. I think I'm one of the only people in the blogosphere who is considering putting together this set. But if I do it, I'm going to do it large... we're talking a set of all the colors of the 4-1s (except the #/21, that's nuts) and all of the minis.

Uh, I hate to ruin all that hard work, but...

The problem with this subset is that most of the player combos don't make much sense.

dayf said...

That link doesn't ruin my hard work, it validates it. UD's list has errors and doesn't show up in a Google search. Card number 35-99 is incorrect on the UD site for a start.

Even if you can find these lists elsewhere that's fine with me. I've been doing the SP checklists for my benefit primarily and if they're useful to others then all the better.

Awesome job, dayf! Thanks for all the hard work! This subset seems more manageable now.

thanx man. I am a Goudey lover. These posts help. BTW, I'm looking for a 2008 Goudey Graphs Jeter. Peace.

--David said...

Awesome work and research! Great job.

Sharpe said...

Agreed, thanks for doing some legwork and noting the errors from the UD site. I was also stymied a few weeks back when Google searches weren't turning up anything.

Rather than spend extra for a hobby box, a friend and I opted for those 8 pack retail boxes. I'm going to post what I pulled from those this week if you are interested.
