1934 V255 Canadian Chewing Gum "Papoose Animal Gum Series" Complete Set (70)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $240

Extremely attractive complete set of V255 "Papoose Animal Gum Series" consisting of seventy cards issued by the Canadian Chewing Gum Company. Each card features a brilliant color illustration of an animal on the front along with information about the animal and company advertising boldly printed in black on the reverse. The entire set when viewed from the front presents as Vg to Ex, with a few exceptions, but would technically grade more modestly due to light traces of adhesive residue or small areas of paper loss on the reverse. The text on the back of each card encourages young collectors to save these cards in their scrapbooks, so it is very likely that the original collector of these cards followed those instructions, and then the cards were carefully removed at some point in time. This undoubtedly contributed to the very bright and crisp overall appearance of this set. This is a beautiful complete set of this scarce Canadian nonsport issue. Total: 70 cards.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $240
