1933 R39 National Chicle "Dare Devils" Complete PSA-Graded Set (24)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,700

Extremely attractive high-grade complete 1933 R39 "Dare Devils" set issued by National Chicle. All twenty-four cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is by far the finest of the very few Dare Devils sets we have ever offered. The PSA grades are as follows: Two NM 7: #11 and 13. Five EX-MT 6: #2, 14, 15, 17, and 22. One EX+ 5.5: #23. Eight EX 5: #4, 6, 9, 10, 16, 19, 21, and 24 (last card in the set). Eight VG-EX 4: #1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 12, 18, and 20. This fascinating set features various "Death Defying Deeds in the Air," "Daring Deeds of Firemen and Policemen," "Famous Gangsters on the Spot," "Official G-Men Captures," "Wild West Dare Devils," and "Do-Or-Die Heroes." The exceptional artwork, brilliant colors, and controversial subject matter make the "Dare Devils" set one of the 1930s most popular nonsport sets. Some cards are gruesome, some celebrate gangsters, others tell scary true-life stories involving danger, and even death. It's easy to see why kids would love "Dare Devils." What more could one ask from a bubble-gum card set? This is a very attractive high-grade complete set of one of the most classic of all 1930s nonsport issues. Total 24 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $4,700
