1941 R336 Play Ball Complete Set (72) Including Joe DiMaggio PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,500

Extremely attractive complete set of the 1941 Play Ball series issued by Gum, Inc., one of card collecting's all-time classic gum issues. This full-color seventy-two-card set includes many Hall of Famers and stars, including Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. Condition is 70% Ex to Ex-Mt and 30% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Two cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Miller (Ex), 6 Hubbell (Ex), 8 Ott (Vg-Ex), 9 (EX 5), 10 Vaughan (Ex), 13 Foxx (Ex), 14 Williams (Gd), 15 Cronin (Vg-Ex), 18 Greenberg (Ex), 19 Gehringer (Ex), 20 Ruffing (Ex-Mt), 39 Henrich (Ex), 54 Reese RC (Vg), 60 Klein (Ex+), 61 V.

One of the great things about card collecting is that the classic card sets can be collected in any condition, on any budget. Spanning several grades, this is a very attractive set throughout with many condition highlights (including a very pleasing PSA EX 5 example of Joe DiMaggio). A beautiful set such as this, that spans several grades, often represents a particularly outstanding collecting value. This is a very attractive set that we think any collector would would find extremely appealing, while at the same time being a far more affordable alternative to a higher-grade set of this very popular prewar gum issue. The SMR value for just the DiMaggio graded EX 5 is $1,500. Total: 72 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,500
