1936 R311 Leather Finish Premiums Complete Set (15)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Extremely attractive and rarely offered complete set of fifteen R311 Leather Finish Premiums issued by the National Chicle Co. Each premium measures 6 x 8 inches and has a distinctive "leather-like" surface, as described in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, featuring black-and-white photos of individual players (eleven premiums), multiple players (two premiums), or pennant-winning teams (two premiums). All fifteen premiums present as Vg-Ex to Ex from the front (with two Vg), which is far better than the condition in which these delicate and oversized premiums are usually found. The blank reverse of each premium does, however, show faint traces of having once been carefully mounted at each of the four corners (a few premiums show additional small spots in the center and/or along the edges). This flaw would cause the premiums to grade more modestly, but does not take away at all from their impressive presentation and outstanding display value. Complete sets of R311 Leather Finish Premiums are seen with far less frequency than most other premium issues of the 1930s, and this is a particularly attractive offering, loaded with ten Hall of Famers, including Joe DiMaggio, Jimmy Foxx, Rogers Hornsby, Connie Mack, and Honus Wagner. Total: 15 premiums. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $840
