1933-1948 Baseball Card Wrapper Collection Including Rarities (27)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,819

Tremendous collection of twenty-six baseball and two football wrappers from the 1930s and 1940s, the golden age of the bubble gum card. Included are several significant highlights, such as the 1935 R321 Goudey, 1936 R322 Goudey, 1938 R323 Goudey Heads-Up wrapper proof, and 1941 R324 Goudey. Carefully assembled one at a time by a longtime hobbyist, the collection consists of the following (in order of year of issue): 1-8) Complete set of eight different 1933 R319 Goudey (batter type front - 3 corner; batter type front - 4 corner; batter type front - 3 figure; batter type front - 6 figure; ad type front - 3 corner; ad type front - 4 corner; ad type front - 3 figure; ad type front - 6 figure. Seven range from Gd to Vg-Ex, one is fair). 9) 1933 R308 Tattoo Orbit (Gd). 10-11) Two 1934 R309-1 Goudey Premiums Mailing Envelopes (Vg-Ex and Vg). 12-13) Two 1934 R320 Goudey (large grades Gd and small is Vg). 14) 1935 R321 Goudey (Fr). 15-16) Two 1934-36 R327 Diamond Stars (both yellow type with different advertisements on the top, Vg-Ex and Gd). 17) 1936 R322 Goudey (Vg-Ex/Ex). This is a particularly rare wrapper. 18) 1939 R334 Play Ball (Ex). 19-20) Two 1940 R335 Play Ball (yellow – Vg and green - Vg, very attractive pair, both are extremely rare wrappers). 21-22) Two 1941 R324 Goudey (Vg-Ex and Vg). 23-24) Two 1948 Leaf (Ex and Vg). 25) World Wide Gum Diamond Stars (Vg, no foldlines, appears to be a file copy). We are uncertain exactly what cards were issued with this extremely rare wrapper. 26-27) Two 1935 National Chicle Football (both Vg-Ex). These twenty-seven wrappers together represent the foundation of a very impressive collection of early bubble-gum baseball and football card wrappers. Total 27 wrappers (25 baseball and 2 football). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,819
