1973 Topps Lou Gehrig spotted in “The Goonies”
This is probably old news to many of you — or maybe not — but there is a baseball card shown in the 1985 flick, “The Goonies.”
In the movie there is a story about a guy who went missing in 1934 while hunting for treasure underground. The group of kids who star in the movie find the man and a book of his. The book market? The Lou Gehrig card.
Gehrig was a stud in the 1920s and 1930s as you know. But the card on which he is shown is NOT from that era. It’s actually a 1973 Topps card.
Like I said, it may be old news to you, but it’s new to me.
