This is an extremely advanced collection of R313 and R314 premiums from the collection of an old-time pioneer collector. The high quality photographs used to produce these premiums make them among the most striking and distinctive of all 1930s issues. Premiums have received relatively little attention from collectors compared to traditional gum cards of the era, and a case can easily be made that they represent one of the best values of all 1930s baseball issues. Total: 278 cards. SOLD FOR $2,700
