High-grade complete set of this extremely popular and classic nonsport issue. All ninety-six cards in the set have been professionally graded and encapsulated NM 7 by PSA (except for #1 Curly, which grades SGC NM+ 86). This is a beautiful, very carefully assembled set. All the cards are both sharp and extremely clean. Fleer's "Three Stooges" set was issued when the Stooges' movie shorts were being introduced for the first time to a new generation of youngsters on television. The exposure revitalized their careers, giving them a second chance to entertain millions. This second shot of stardom was even greater than what they had experienced in the 1930s and 1940s, and ingrained the Stooges' comedy into the consciousness of America and popular culture. Naturally, many products were produced to capitalize on this stardom, including this set of bubble-gum cards. Their shorts, which were originally produced to be shown as bonuses with feature films at movie theaters, are still shown on television today, ensuring a legion of new fans in each generation, and promoting The Stooges' status as American icons of comedy. This is a very attractive and clean complete set of this classic 1950s nonsport issue. The total SMR value for the assigned grades is $6,020 (the one half-grade is valued at the lower full-grade level). Total: 96 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
