1953 Red Man Tobacco Complete Set Plus Unopened Pack

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $3,190.00

Presented is a complete set of 1953 Red Man Tobacco (all with tabs) accompanied by an unopened pack of 1953 Red Man tobacco featuring card #14 Early Wynn. 1) Complete set of fifty-two 1953 Red Man tobacco cards (all with tabs): 98% range from Ex to Ex-Mt condition, 2% slightly lesser. Keys: Stengel (Vg-Ex), Berra (Vg-Ex/Ex), Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), Campanella (Vg-Ex/Ex), Reese (Ex/Ex-Mt), Snider (Ex/Ex-Mt), Musial (Vg-Ex/Ex). Remarkably crisp high-grade set of this popular and attractive issue, all complete with tabs. Red Man Tobacco cards are far rarer than most 1950s baseball cards. Because of their tabs (which were designed to be cut) and method of issue, they often have condition problems. Many consider them to represent one of the best values of all cards from the era. 2) Original unopened 15-cent pack of 1953 Red Man tobacco, featuring card #14 Early Wynn on the back, beneath the clear wax-paper wrap, exactly as issued in 1953. All of the wax seals are intact, as are the tax stamps sealing the pack under the wax-paper wrap. This pack is a gem, appearing exactly as it did when originally sold. Excellent to Mint. Total: fifty-two cards plus one unopened pack. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $3,190.00
