1933 R300 George C. Miller Near-Complete Set Including Andrews (27/32)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,113

Collection of twenty-seven cards (out of just 32 in the set) from the 1933 R300 George C. Miller & Co. set, one of the most unusual and rare issues of the 1930s, and one of the most artistically unique sets of any era. The collection is highlighted by sixteen Hall of Famers including Dizzy Dean and Jimmy Foxx, as well as the Ivy Andrews card (one of the true rarities in all of card collecting). This is an incredibly substantial group of R300. Cards from this set usually have to be collected one at a time due to their extreme rarity. Large groups are almost never seen. This near-complete set represents a very significant opportunity for collectors interested in completing this elusive issue, which has been an almost impossible feat for so many serious collectors in the past. Only a few complete sets of R300 have ever been assembled. The twenty-seven cards represent 84% of the set. Three cards are Vg, and twenty-four are in lesser grades (ranging from Pr to Gd). Three cards have been graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: Averill (Gd), Andrews (SGC Authentic; aside from the cancellation clipping, the card is in Excellent condition), Bottomley (Fr), Cronin (Pr), Dean (SGC VG 40), Foxx (Pr), Frisch (Pr), Grove (SGC FAIR 20), Goslin (aside from the cancellation holes, the card is in Gd condition), Hafey (Pr), Maranville (Pr), Ott (Pr), Ruffing (Vg), Simmons (aside from the cancellation clipping, the card is in Vg condition), Terry (Fr), L. Waner (Vg), and P. Waner (Gd). Though modest in terms of technical grades, this is a great-looking group, and a very substantial collection of cards from one of the rarest and most artistically stunning sets ever issued. Total: 27 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,113
