Collection of 1930s gum cards from three key non-sport issues: 1) 1933 R73 Goudey "Indian Gum": 120 different cards (of 216 in the set) as follows: #1-24 (missing only #3), #25-96 (missing #78, 84, 87, 88, 93 and 95), and #97-216 (31 different). We also note that #26, 27, 33, 35, 37, 41, 42 and 46 are the scarcer "blue panel" variety, and #14 is from the "Series of twenty-four." Condition ranges from Gd to Vg-Ex, overall Vg. Accompanied by a Type 1 wrapper (Gd). 2) 1935 R109 Gum Inc. "Pirates Gum" complete set of 72 cards: overall in very consistent Vg to Vg/Vg-Ex condition, with the exception of a few cards in Gd. The set is accompanied by a wrapper, noted for its exceptional design, which technically is in only Gd condition due to a few small border tears but looks much nicer. 3) 1933 R136 National Chicle "Sky Birds": 107 of the 108 cards in the set. Missing only #101 for completion. 40% range from Vg-Ex/Ex to Ex, 50% Vg to Vg-Ex, 10% Gd. This set is also accompanied by a wrapper in Ex-Mt condition. Total 299 cards plus 3 wrappers. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $5,800.00
