1934 R310 Butterfinger Premiums Complete Master Set (66)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Complete 66-card master set of R310 Butterfinger Premiums consisting of the sixty-five cards in a complete set plus the single "x" variation of Jimmy Foxx. Issued with Butterfinger products and other candies, the R310 series is one of great premium sets produced during the 1930s. An impressive twenty-seven Hall of Famers are featured throughout the set, highlighted by New York Yankees superstars Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Each premium is printed on thin stock measuring 7.75 x 9.5 inches and features the player in a black-and-white image along with a facsimile signature. The fragile paper stock of this issue makes high-grade examples extremely rare, and flaws such as light wrinkling, creasing, or tearing "come with the territory." This is a very attractive set, with almost all of the technical flaws, such as minor tears or chipping, relegated to the perimeter. Overall condition is 15% Vg-Ex, 58% Vg, and 27% lesser. Keys: Averill (small chip in upper right corner, otherwise Vg-Ex), Bottomley (Vg), Cochrane (Vg-Ex), Cronin (Vg), Dean (Vg-Ex), Dickey (Pr), Durocher (Pr), Ferrell (Gd/Vg), Fox (Jimmy Foxx one "x" variation; small pencil notation on reverse, otherwise Ex), Foxx (Vg-Ex), Gehrig (team name written in pencil on front, otherwise Gd/Vg), Frisch (Pr), Gehringer (Vg), Gomez (Pr), Grove (Vg), Hafey (Vg), Harris (Pr), Hornsby (Pr), Hoyt (Gd/Vg), Johnson (Vg), Manush (Pr), Ott (Vg), Ruffing (Vg), Ruth (Vg), Simmons (Vg), Vance (Pr), L. Waner (Gd), and P. Waner (Vg-Ex). Complete sets of this issue are very rarely assembled or offered for sale. This is an extremely attractive complete master set of this desirable 1930s premium issue with numerous highlights! Total: 66 premiums. SOLD FOR $1,440
