1936 Heinz "Famous Aviators" #8 Capt. Edwin Musick - Important Rarity!

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $119

Important rarity of #8 Edwin Musick from the popular Heinz "Famous Aviators" set issued by the company "for the purpose of stimulating Young America's interest in aviation" as printed on the card reverse. This key rarity to the set, which features a number of notable aviators, honors Musick for his navigation of the Pacific Ocean, flying between San Francisco and Pearl Harbor. It has been speculated that Musick's status as a short print relates to the fact that he died tragically in a midair explosion shortly after the set was issued and may have been pulled from future printings as a result. Graded GOOD 2 by PSA, the card presents as Near Mint on front with near-perfect centering, vibrant colors, four sharp corners, and bright white borders. It has been downgraded due to a tiny area of paper loss on the reverse. This is an outstanding example of this nonsport extreme rarity from one of the 1930s most interesting sets. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $119
