Superb trio of complete sets issued by Heinz during the 1930s. Heinz produced several aviation-themed sets during this era "for the purpose of stimulating Young America's interest in aviation," as noted on the backs of cards from its "Famous Aviators" set. We have submitted four cards to be professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) 1930s Heinz "Famous Airplanes" Series 1: Complete set of 25 cards. Overall condition is Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, with three lesser due to hard-to-see wrinkles or creases. Two cards are graded by SGC: #7 (NM/MT 88) and 13 (MINT 96). Accompanied by the original album designed to house the set. Very Good condition overall, with a few light creases. 2) 1930s Heinz "Famous Airplanes" Series 2: Complete set of 25 cards. Overall condition is Vg-Ex to Ex, with ten lesser (several due to small flaws on the reverse). 3) 1930s Heinz "Famous Aviators": Complete set of 25 cards. Overall condition is Ex to Nr/Mt, with seven lesser. Two cards are graded by SGC: #1 Lindbergh (NM 84) and 2 (NM 84). Accompanied by the original album designed to house the set, with #3 and 19 housed inside. Excellent condition overall, with a few tiny flaws, including pencil on the back cover. All cards in the offered sets are bright and clean. This is a tremendous assembly of these popular nonsport sets. Total: 3 sets consisting of 75 cards plus two albums. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
