1938 to 1969 Baseball Complete Set Collection - Unusual Issues (8 sets)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,560
Eclectic collection of eight complete sets, spanning the years 1938 through 1969, highlighted by many Hall of Famers and stars. This is a fascinating group of unusual vintage cards, primarily comprised of overlooked and undervalued "oddball" issues, with many interesting highlights. Consigned from an old-time collection, the balance of which appears elsewhere, this lot represents the various unusual issues of the collection. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1938 Our National Game Pins Complete Set (30). Grades Ex to Ex-Mt overall with a few slightly lesser. Nine of the pins remain mounted on their original cards as issued. Includes seventeen Hall of Famers: Cronin, Dean, DiMaggio, Feller, Foxx, Gehrig, Gehringer, Gomez, Greenberg, Hartnett, Hubbell, McCarthy, Medwick, Ott, Ruffing, Simmons, and Terry. 2) 1952 Wheaties Complete Set (60). Grades Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt overall with nine lesser. 3) 1960 Morrell Meats Dodgers Complete Set (12). Presents Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt, but all cards are stuck inside vintage nine-pocket pages and surface peeling is visible on several. 4) 1961 Golden Press Complete Set (33). Grades Ex to Nr/Mt overall. 5) 1961 Nu-Card Baseball Scoops Complete Set (80). Overall Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, with nine Vg-Ex to Ex. The Nu-Card Scoops set features many of baseball's greatest moments presented in a mock newspaper design. 6) 1963 Bazooka All-Time Greats Complete Set (41 plus two duplicates). Grades Vg-Ex to Ex overall, with four lesser. Thirty-three cards are the scarce silver variation. The Bazooka All-Time Greats set was issued as inserts in boxes of Bazooka bubble gum. 7) 1966 East Hills Pirates Complete Set (25). Grades Ex to Ex-Mt overall, with a few technically lesser due to miscut nameplates. 8) 1969 Citgo Coins Complete Set (20). Grades Ex to Ex-Mt overall. Eight very attractive oddball baseball sets, each loaded with Hall of Famers and stars, and each representing a particularly outstanding collecting value compared to many other sets from the era. Total: 8 sets, 303 items. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
