1934 R24 Goudey "Big Thrill Booklets" Original Wax Wrapper

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $420

Presented is an extremely rare original wax wrapper from the R24 "Big Thrill Booklets" set. Extremely rare wrapper for one of the all-time classic 1930s nonsport sets. The "Big Thrill Booklets" set naturally has a great crossover appeal to both comic and character collectors. Four different characters (Buck Jones, Buck Rogers, Dick Tracy, and Tailspin Tommy) are featured in six-card subsets in this rare 1930s issue. The red, white, and blue wrapper measures approximately 5-1/8 x 6-1/2 inches and features advertising for the set and small images of the four characters in each corner. "Big Thrill Chewing Gum" and the promise of "A Book In Every Package" are boldly positioned in the center of the wrapper. Overall Excellent or better condition, with a perfectly clean surface and normal fold lines. This is only the second example of this rare wrapper that we have ever seen, and we believe the offered example is the finer of the two. The "Big Thrill Booklets" are among the most desirable of all 1930s Goudey issues, and this original wax wrapper would be an ideal companion piece to any complete set or significant addition to any advanced nonsport wrapper collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $420
