Selection of three complete nonsport-card sets, issued between 1930 and 1961, all capturing the spirit of the "Pirates" at sea. The fascination with the history of legendary pirates, such as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Sir Henry Morgan, has inspired many different interesting card sets. These are three classics of the genre. 1) 1930 R110-1 "Pirate Treasure" Complete Set (48): Seventeen cards grade Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, twenty-six Vg-Ex to Ex, and five lesser. 2) 1936 F375 Pac-Kups "Jolly Roger Pirates" Complete Set (48): Nine cards grade Nr/Mt-Mt, thirty-two Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, and seven Vg-Ex to Ex. Includes one PSA-graded card: A Treasure Map (NM-MT 8). 3) 1961 Fleer "Pirates Bold" Complete Set (66): Twenty-six cards grade Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, thirty-three Vg-Ex to Ex, and seven Vg. Includes seven Flags of the Spanish Main inserts: two Vg, two Gd, two Fr, and one Pr-Fr. This is a very attractive collection of three complete sets, each chronicling the fascinating legends of pirates, consigned by a longtime advanced collector. Total: 3 sets, 162 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
