Charlie Gehringer Pickup: 1934 R310 Butterfinger Premium, Slabbed a PSA 1!

I had the opportunity last year to add a unique vintage piece to my collection. It also happened to be of a Hall of Fame player I did not have any cards of, and when that kind of chance presents itself, I jump. I bought the item for a reasonable price on eBay and then submitted it at work for slabbing. It came back and I couldn't be happier with the addition to my collection.


Hailing from the super cool 1934 R310 Butterfinger Premium set and looking quite spiffy in the new PSA jumbo holder, here's.....Charlie Gehringer. The Mechanical Man, as he was known, worked at an ice cream plant in his youth.

My favorite note about Gehringer's career: in over 10,200 plate appearances he walked 1,186 times while striking out just 372 times.

He was the starting second baseman in the first All-Star Game; was the 1937 AL MVP; worked in a sporting goods store, sold coal wholesale, and leased gas stations during offseasons; served in the Navy during WWII; is a cousin of John Smoltz; hit for the cycle; and missed his own Hall of Fame induction ceremony to spend time preparing for his wedding.

  1. Awesome addition to your HOF collection. Is that dot in the bottom righthand corner a pinhole or something? If so, that would explain the grade, because that card looks to be in amazing condition.
