Offered is an extremely rare uncut sheet (5 15/16-by-7 ¼ inches) featuring six 1935 Goudey cards and picturing the complete black-and-white Puzzle of Hall of Famer Chuck Klein. The reverse of the 1935 Goudey cards features Puzzle pieces, which when assembled form an approximately 6-by-7 ¼-inch black-and-white baseball picture. One of the most fascinating qualities of an uncut 1935 Goudey sheet, in addition to the novelty of its great rarity, is that when turned over one can view the reverse Puzzle already assembled, as it appeared before being cut. Each 1935 Goudey card front features four players. Among the 24 players featured on this six-card uncut sheet are a half dozen Hall of Famers, including Mel Ott, Pie Traynor, Dazzy Vance, Red Ruffing, Tony Lazzeri and Bill Dickey. The six cards included on the sheet are Nos. 6, 9, 15, 20, 28 and 36, according to the numbering in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. The sheet presents extremely well, seemingly Excellent, but would command a technical Fair grade because of a small tear to card No. 28 that is noticed only upon close scrutiny and does not detract from the presentation. Like all Goudeys, R321s were originally printed on 24-card sheets and are a lot rarer in sheet form than other 1930s Goudey issues. Sheets that are known were often cut as this one was, in accordance with maintaining a complete Puzzle back image. This sheet is reasonably well cut, with only some slight irregular cutting on the top of the six-card fronts.
