1933 R109 Gum, Inc. "Pirate's Picture" Complete Set (72) Plus Wrapper

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,000

Presented is a 72-card complete set of R109 "Pirate's Picture" cards issued by Gum, Inc. The R109 set, one of the great gum-card sets produced during the 1930s, features colorful illustrations of pirate-related scenes along with narratives on the reverse about the pirates and their adventures. Condition of the set ranges from Pr to Vg, averaging Gd. Three cards (#9, 34, and 59) are short-printed and make completion of this set especially challenging. These three short-prints grade Pr, Vg, and Gd, respectively. Also included with the set is an original wax wrapper, which features crisp, pirate-themed illustrations in bold color. It has been flattened and displays normal wrinkling. This is an extremely attractive complete set of this classic 1930s issue, accompanied by an original wax wrapper, that would be a significant addition to any nonsport-card collection. Total: 72 cards and one wrapper.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $3,000
