Presented is a rarely offered near-complete set consisting of twenty-five different (out of twenty-eight) 1930 Blue Ribbon Malt Premiums Chicago Cubs, highlighted by six Hall of Famers including Rogers Hornsby and Hack Wilson. Missing only Carlson, Nelson, and Totten for completion. These premiums (5 x 7 inches) feature a black-and-white photo mounted on a heavy gray cardboard for an overall size of 6-1/4 x 8-3/4 inches. Condition is Gd to Vg-Ex, averaging Vg. The preceding grades, as well as those in the composite below, are mostly due to creasing of the cardboard mounts. The photos, with the exceptions of English (Vg) and Wilson (Vg-Ex), range in condition from Ex to Nr/Mt. Keys: Cuyler (Vg), Hartnett (Vg), Hornsby (Gd+), McCarthy (Gd+), Schalk (Vg+), and Wilson (Gd). This is a rarely offered near-complete set of this unusual and distinctive 1930s prewar issue. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
