1933 DeLong Gum Collection of 16

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,737.50

Offered are 16 different (of the 24 cards in the set) of the 1933 DeLong Gum series. DeLongs have always held a special place in the hearts of collectors. The small size of the set, their relative rarity compared to most others card sets of the era, their unique dimensions and design, and status as a "one-year issue" all combine to give DeLongs a mystique among serious collectors. This collection of 16 cards, representing two-thirds of the set, includes the following #'s: 2 Simmons (Vg-Ex/Ex), 3 (Ex-Mt), 5 Gehringer (light stain in upper left corner, otherwise Ex-Mt), 6 Cochrane (Ex), 10 O'Doul (Vg-Ex/Ex), 14 Gomez (Vg-Ex/Ex), 15 (Ex), 16 (Ex-Mt), 17 Martin (light stain on top border, otherwise Nr/Mt), 18 (Ex), 19 Hafey (Ex), 20 (Ex), 21 Foxx (Ex), 22 Klein (Vg-Ex/Ex), 23 Grove (Vg-Ex/Ex), and 24 Goslin (Ex). A very clean and attractive group, including nine Hall of Famers, and representing the foundation of a very pleasing set of these 1930s classics. Total 16 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,737.50
