Circa 1934 R78 World Wide Gum (Canadian Goudey) "Jungle Gum" Complete Set (48)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720

Presented is an exceptionally attractive complete 48-card set of the R78 "Jungle Gum" series, issued by World Wide Gum Co. circa 1934. Each card pictures a beautiful scene of African wildlife. Grades 75% Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex) and 25% Vg (with a couple slightly lesser). Even the lesser-graded examples are bright, crisp, and clean, presenting as Ex as first glance, but displaying light creases under close inspection. Though the backs state that the set is comprised of 192 cards, only 48 cards were ever produced. The first series of twenty-four cards are numbered 1-24; the second series of twenty-four cards were skip numbered between 25 and 71 (no doubt causing great confusion among kids collecting the set when issued). This is a superb and rarely offered complete set of this popular nonsport issue. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $720
