1938 Goudey Joe DiMaggio This card set from Goudey is numbered 241 to 288 for a total of 48 cards, consisting of two different (but similar) 24-card sets; the latter set (265 to 288) seem to be less common. The numbering is continued from the company's 1933 set.

The card fronts consist of cartoony drawings of popular baseball players but with oversized heads taken from photographs. The first set (241 to 264) show the caricatures against a primarily blank background, while the second set also contains smaller drawings and text in the background. The complete set has 24 different players, shown on two cards each.

Card backs offer player biographical information and game statistics in the top half, with an advertisement for Big League chewing gum ("Made by the originators of Indian Gum") in the bottom half.
