The colorful R142 "Soldier Boys" series was issued with Goudey's "Soldier Boy Chewing Gum." The 24-card set features "Colorful, thrilling pictures of Soldiers and Flags of All Nations." Condition of the offered set is technically modest overall, with creasing and corner wear affecting most of the cards. Also, accompanying the set is an original wax wrapper (Nr/Mt), an extremely rare advertising window display (9.25 x 7 inches, from the files of Goudey the right edge is slightly trimmed off and a staple hole on left side of the top border), and two miniature cloth flag inserts (both Nr/Mt). Goudey "Soldier Boys" cards are rarely offered as a complete set, and the four companion pieces related to the set that are offered in this lot are even scarcer. Total: 24 cards plus one wax wrapper, advertising window display, and two miniature flags. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
