Complete set of this very early Topps issue featuring William Boyd as Hopalong Cassidy. "Hoppy" was very popular with kids and was a natural to be the subject of a card set in the earliest days of the Topps Gum Company. Also included with the set are all eight scarce unnumbered foil cards, which are considered by most to be a separate issue. The condition of the set is 32% Ex to Ex-Mt, 56% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 12% lesser (including a few miscut). The complete 230-card (#1-230) "Hopalong Cassidy" set narrates ten different stories. Cards feature photographs from both the movies and the TV show. The condition of the foil header cards is: Dangerous Venture (Gd), Borrowed Trouble (Gd), Hoppy's Holiday (Vg), False Paradise (ink stamp on back, otherwise Gd), Unexpected Guest (Vg-Ex), Devil's Playground (Gd), The Dead Don't Dream (Gd), and Fool's Gold (Vg-Ex). This is a very tough set rarely offered complete in any grade, and of enormous significance as one of the earliest card sets ever issued by Topps. Total: 238 cards (set of 230 plus eight foil cards). Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
