1935 R147 Schutter-Johnson Tarzan and the Crystal Vault of Isis Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $5,800.00

Extraordinary high-grade complete 50-card set of the extremely rare "Tarzan and the Crystal Vault of Isis" card set, issued by Schutter-Johnson Candy in one-cent packages of "Tarzan of the Apes Candy." This is one of the rarest and most highly regarded sets of the 1930s, and the first complete set that we have ever offered. This is a remarkably consistent high-grade complete set in pristine Ex-Mt condition (includes a few cards which could be graded Ex due to corner wear, but many more would qualify as Nr/Mt). The extreme scarcity of this set is probably due in part to the fact that Schutter-Johnson Candy was such a small company. But Schutter-Johnson pulled out all the stops to issue this exceptionally high quality card issue, which among all the sport and non-sport sets they ever produced is unquestionably their premier card issue. All cards are bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back, with flawless colors, and square corners. The set is accompanied by an original wrapper, which is extremely rare in its own right. The wrapper has creases and a few well-executed repairs to tears, but still very presentable, with a Good to Very Good appearance. Total 50 cards plus wrapper. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $5,800.00
