1936 R312 National Chicle Premiums SGC-Graded Collection (19)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,303.50

Collection of nineteen (of the fifty in the set) 1936 R312 premium baseball players issued by National Chicle, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. This full-color (4 x 5-3/8 inches) premium set is comprised of twenty-five individual player portraits, fourteen multiplayer cards, and eleven in-action photos. The beautiful, rich pastel colors of R312 premiums make them one of the most striking and distinctive of all 1930s issues. Considering how substantial they are, R312 premiums have received very little attention from collectors, in part due to the fact that they are larger than standard cards, and therefore have only recently begun to be encapsulated by grading services, and the fact that they are blank-backed with no identification of the issuer. A case could be made that they represent one of the best values among all 1930s issues. In the following condition composite, cards are identified by the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. SGC condition report: Three EX 60: #10 Galan/Herman/Lindstrom/Hartnett/etc. (HOF), 11 Cavaretta/Herman/Jurges/Hack (HOF), and 15 Harris/Cronin (HOF). Three VG/EX+ 55: #6 Bolton/Whitehill, 18 Taylor/Speaker/Cuyler (HOF), and 32 Hartnett Crossing Home (HOF). Two VG/EX 50: #20 Joe DiMaggio (HOF) and 48 Vaughan/Wagner (HOF). Three VG+ 45: #12 Cochrane (HOF), 26 Taylor/Galan, and 40 Mungo. Six VG 40: #7 Bordagaray/Earnshaw, 13 Collins/Hack, 27 Hoag/Gomez (HOF), 30 Walker/Haas/Kreevich, 35 Sothoron/Hornsby (HOF), and 36 Lombardi (HOF). One GOOD+ 35: #19 Dickey (HOF). One GOOD 30: #2 Altrock/Schacht. It is not surprising that many of the premiums in this collection have an even stronger appearance than their technically accurate grades as R312s tend to be more susceptible to corner wear because they are oversized and printed on fragile stock. This is an extremely attractive collection of these classic 1930s premiums. Total: 19 premiums. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,303.50
