1936 R60 Gum, Inc. "G-Men & Heroes of the Law" PSA NM-MT 8 Collection (5)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,303.50

Collection of five extremely high-grade cards, each graded NM-MT 8 by PSA, from Gum, Inc.'s "G-Men & Heroes of the Law" set. This is one of nonsport-card collecting's all-time classic sets, presenting exciting "official stories" about "G-Men and Famous Police Organizations and Heroes of the Law." These cards chronicle law enforcement adventures in an era that glamorized, at times, both the representatives of law enforcement and the criminals. Advanced collectors are well aware that "G-Men" cards are far more difficult to collect in high grade than baseball cards of the era, in part because they are far rarer. In fact, less than five percent of all "G-Men" cards graded by PSA have been evaluated as NM-MT or higher. This collection consists of the following: #15, 117, 269, 277, and 281. No more than four examples of each card are graded at this level with two examples, #15 and 117, having only one other at this level. Four of the cards are the scarcer red ampersand variation with #15 the lone yellow variety. This is an outstanding group of ultra high-grade cards from one of the most popular and classic nonsport sets of all time. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,303.50
