1936 R61 Government Agents vs. Public Enemies Complete Set (24)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $353

Rarely offered complete set of all twenty-four cards comprising the 1936 "Government Agents vs. Public Enemies" set, issued by M. Pressner & Company. This is one of nonsport-card collecting's all-time classic sets. These cards chronicle law enforcement adventures in an era that glamorized, at times, both the representatives of law enforcement as well as the criminals. The set grades Vg overall. Central images on all are very strong. These cards wear very easily. Cards have been downgraded mostly due to corner and edge wear. This is an attractive mid-grade set of these unusual, scarce, and very colorful 1930s cards, which celebrate law enforcement and capture the spirit of the times. Total 24 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $353
