Issued primarily as a card game, 1936 Goudey Baseball flies under the radar in comparison to other Goudey releases of the time. The simple, black-and-white release is also more affordable, but because of the the many card back variations, a master set is no small task.

Clearly attempting to mix things up, immensely popular Goudey sets in 1933 and 1934 gave way to the 4-in-1 cards in 1935 Goudey and followed that up with the R322 cards in 1936 Goudey Baseball. Measuring the relatively standard 2-3/8" by 2-7/8", there is really not much to the cards. The card fronts only feature a black-and-white photo, white border and the player's name in a cursive font.

1936 Goudey Baseball card backs are where the "game" comes into play. Two possible outcomes are featured, with each displayed using a different text orientation. A short bio for the player pictured on the front is sandwiched in-between the two plays. There are a total of 25 different card back options. However, each front is paired with multiple backs, putting the total amount of possible cards much higher.

Coming in at just 25 cards, the small checklist misses a few big names, but still features several Hall of Fame players. The most notable options are Hank Greenberg and Mickey Cochrane. The biggest omissions include Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio, who was a rookie in 1936.

For those collectors looking for more depth from the season, there is a 1936 Goudey Wide Pen Premium (R314) set with a much larger checklist. The 3-1/4" by 5-1/2" set features a very similar front design to 1936 Goudey Baseball.
