Exceptional ultra high-grade collection of fifteen cards (ten different and five duplicates) from the popular F277-4 “Famous Aviators” series issued by the Heinz Company in the 1930s, all graded and encapsulated NM-MT 8 by PSA (except one NM-MT+ 8.5 and one NM 7). Heinz produced several aviation-themed sets during this era "for the purpose of stimulating Young America's interest in aviation," as noted on the backs of cards from its "Famous Aviators" set. Each card in this group is flawlessly bright and crisp with bold colors, four sharp corners, and flawless edges. This collection consists of the following: #5, 8 (NM-MT+ 8.5), 9, 10, 12, 13 (NM 7), two 17, two 19, two 21, and three 24. This group represents an outstanding collecting opportunity to acquire fifteen extraordinary ultra high-grade examples of these popular cards, which would serve as ideal upgrades to almost any collection or serve as a foundation for the assembly of a world-class F277-4 “Famous Aviators”complete set. Total: 15 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
