Complete set of 1948 "Sports Thrills" issued by Swell Bubble Gum. This is a very scarce set, which has often been overlooked by collectors. The 20-card set is devoted to great moments in baseball history. Condition is three Vg-Ex to Ex, ten Vg, and seven Fr to Gd (including one that measures small). Keys: #3 Jackie Robinson (Fr), 4 Walter Johnson (Vg+), 12 Gehrig/Ruth (100/0 L/R, otherwise Vg), 14 Gehrig (Vg), 16 DiMaggio/Ted Williams (Vg-Ex), 18 Pee Wee Reese (Vg), and 19 Feller (Vg). A relatively affordable complete set of this rarely offered postwar bubble-gum issue. Total 20 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
