1941 R330 Double Play Gum, Inc., Partial Set (49 of 75)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,175.00
1941 R330 Double Play partial set: 49 different cards (out of the 75 cards in the complete set) from this unique prewar card issue, which features two players per card. Issued by Gum, Inc., the same company responsible for the Play Ball sets issued from 1939 to 1941 (R330s are much scarcer), this set has never received the collector interest that it deserves. All forty-nine offered cards are different, and included are many Hall of Famers and stars of the era. Twenty-four grade Vg-Ex, nineteen Vg, and six Gd. Included are both Ted Williams cards in the set (different poses) and Joe DiMaggio. We have selected these three key cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #11-12 Ripple/Lombardi (Vg), 15-16 Owen/Waner (Gd), 21-22 Walker/Medwick (Vg), 23-24 Reese/Higbe (Vg/Vg-Ex), 31-32 Ott/Young (Vg-Ex), 33-34 Handley/Vaughan (Vg-Ex), 39-40 Mize/Slaughter (Vg/Vg-Ex), 51-52 Newsome/Greenberg (Vg-Ex), 53-54 McCosky/Gehringer (Vg), 57-58 Williams/Tabor (PSA VG-EX 4), 59-60 Cronin/Foxx (Vg-Ex), 61-62 Gomez/Rizzuto RC (Vg-Ex), 63-64 DiMaggio/Keller (PSA GOOD 2), 65-66 Rolfe/Dickey (Vg), 67-68 Gordon/Ruffing (Vg), 77-78 Krakauskas/Feller (Vg-Ex), 81-82 Williams/Cronin (PSA VG-EX 4), 85-86 Greenberg/Ruffing (Vg), 89-90 Ott/Whitehead (Vg), and 99-100 Mize/Litwhiler (Vg). The following are the twenty-six cards missing for completion: #3-4, 101-102, 103-104, 105-106 Grove/Doerr, 107-108, 109-110, 111-112, 113-114, 115-116, 117-118, 119-120, 121-122, 123-124, 125-126, 127-128, 129-130, 131-132, 133-134, 135-136, 137-138, 139-140 Arnovich/Hubbell, 141-142, 143-144, 145-146, 147-148, and 149-150. This is a very attractive medium-grade partial set of this overlooked prewar issue. Total 49 cards (representing 98 players). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
