Circa 1934 R78 World Wide Gum (Canadian Goudey) "Jungle Gum" Complete Set (48)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,778

Complete 48-card set of the R78 "Jungle Gum" series, issued by World Wide Gum Co. in circa 1934. Each cards pictures a beautiful scene of African wildlife. Grades 75% Vg-Ex/Ex to Ex-Mt and 25% Vg (with a couple slightly lesser). Though the backs state that the set is comprised of 192 cards, only 48 cards were ever produced. The first series of twenty-four cards are numbered 1-24; the second series of twenty-for cards were skip numbered between 25 and 71 (no doubt causing great confusion among kids collecting the set when issued). Rarely offered as a complete set. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.

SOLD FOR $1,778
