Presented is a rarely-offered complete 24-card set of R47 "Fighting Planes" issued in the early 1930s by the Shelby Gum Company and accompanied by an original wax wrapper. The cards feature beautiful illustrations of American warplanes. The backs have a brief description of the illustrated airplane. Condition of the set is seven Ex, five Vg-Ex, three Vg, four Gd, two lesser, and three trimmed. The scarce wrapper is in modest condition overall, but still a very desirable companion piece to the set. This is the first complete set of this issue that we have ever offered. Total: 24 cards plus one wax wrapper and one album. 

Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
