Keys: Hank Aaron, Nellie Fox, Frank Robinson, Richie Ashburn, and Rocky Colavito (all perfect Nr/Mt-Mt condition). Also included are two paper game boards which were produced to accompany the set and which allow for a game to be played with the figures. The boards are both in Mint condition. Also accompanying the set is the original Swift Meats envelope in which the set was originally packaged. The envelope has advertising for "Swift Major League Baseball Game." The envelope is in Very Good to Excellent condition. The cards are bright and crisp. This is a virtually flawless complete set of this unique 1950s regional issue in its original and ideal form. Extremely attractive and colorful. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,320.00
