Complete low-number run (# 1-96) from the classic R327 Diamond Stars series. All ninety-six cards have been graded and encapsulated by SGC. Thirty cards range in grade from Ex to Ex-Mt, sixty cards range from Vg to Vg-Ex, and six cards are lesser. The SGC grades are as follows: Three EX/NM 80: #37, 52, and 68. Two EX+ 70: #56 and 61. Twenty-five EX 60: #10, 26 Martin, 28 Lopez, 34, 40, 41, 42, 45, 49, 50 Ott, 51, 57, 66 Medwick, 67, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 78, 82, 86 Crosetti, 87, 93, and 94. Twenty-seven VG/EX 50: #4, 5, 6, 7, 11 Dickey, 16 Waner, 17 Frisch, 19, 20, 23, 27 Traynor, 31 Cuyler, 32 Rice, 38, 44 Hornsby, 46, 47, 48 Ferrell, 58, 62, 63 Jackson, 64 Foxx, 77 Gehringer, 85, 89, 90, and 92.

Four GOOD 30: #2 Simmons, 9 Cochrane (HOF), 21, and 81. Two FAIR 20: #1 Grove and 54 Greenberg. This is a very sharp-looking, mid-grade partial set, representing a tremendous start towards completing one of the 1930s' most popular issues, with many condition highlights and with most cards appearing far better than suggested by their very respectable, technically accurate grades. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grades is $3,887. Total: 96 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,259
