1938 R1 Goudey "Action Gum" Complete Set (96) Plus Two Wrappers

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Presented is a complete 96-card set of R1 "Action Gum" plus two original wax wrappers. Issued by Goudey in the late 1930s, this series features colorful illustrations of battle scenes and military equipment along with detailed descriptions of the scene on the reverse. The reverse also heralded the set as "The Greatest Card Series Ever Produced" at the bottom of each card alongside advertising for the Goudey Gum Company. This set is incredibly popular among nonsport collectors due to its detailed and bright artwork and interesting subject matter. Condition is 61% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few Ex) and 39% lesser. Accompanying the set are two wax wrappers: one blue background and one red background. Both have been flattened for display and grade Vg-Ex (red) and Pr (blue). This is a very attractive complete set of this classic 1930s nonsport issue. Total: 96 cards.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $840
