1952 Dixie Cup Nelsons Ice Cream "Movie, Cowboy and TV Stars" PSA-Graded Complete Set (24)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $296
Complete set of twenty-four ice cream lids from the Dixie Cup Nelsons Ice Cream "Movie, Cowboy and TV Stars" set. Each lid is professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (all MINT 9 except for one GEM MINT 10 - Chandler), and the complete set ranks sixth on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 9.04. Prominent stars of film and TV are featured in this set, including John Wayne, Bing Crosby, Elizabeth Taylor, Bob Hope, Clark Gable, and Gene Kelly. Ice cream lids can be extremely difficult to collect in high-grade due to their method of issue, but this set has survived in tremendously high grade and would make an outstanding addition to any nonsport collection. Decades ago a find of perfect Dixie Lid tops surfaced (obviously direct from the company and never distributed as intended) and the cards from this perfect set are clearly from that legendary find. Total: 24 ice cream lids. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $296
