1951 Parkhurst "Colour Comic Cards" Complete Set (39)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Presented is a rarely seen complete set of thirty-nine "Colour Comic Cards" issued by Parkhurst. These cards, which measure 1.75 x 2.5 inches, feature characters from a variety of comics, including Popeye and Dick Tracy, in full-color scenes on front. Three different style reverses are featured throughout this set: one is entirely blank (seven), one advertises for the Star Weekly newspaper (fourteen), and one advertises a Frostade promotion for a toy gun (eighteen). Overall condition is 36% Vg-Ex to Ex, 28% Vg, 10% Pr to Gd, and 26% that present as Vg-Ex to Ex but technically grade lesser due to glue residue on the reverse. This is a very attractive complete set of this rare Canadian issue that would be a worthy addition to any comic-related or advanced nonsport-card collection. Total: 39 cards. SOLD FOR $480
