Description



Two challenging and popular non-sport series are represented in this worn but respectable collection of (102) 1933-1947 cards with (70) Indian Gum and (32) Sky Birds. Issued by leading manufacturers of the day Goudey and National Chicle, these non-sport grandfathers top the demand charts as hobby favorites.

 

This mixed series selection is solid and desirable with a grade average of (FR to GD) with a few better and a few lesser. Considering their near antique status, these cards run par for the course with moderate signs of age appropriate wear and generally bold colors and distinct text. The majority are better examples which are fairly clean front and back, with corner wear being the main type of wear; and in the minority, the lesser examples are affected on the reverse by staining/soiling, with a small number showing reverse side surface loss and/or adhesive residue from album removal.

 

Cause for excitement is found in the Indian Gum group, which includes a good number of super scarce high series cards; and also with a group of Sky Birds expanded series cards, which are much tougher than the original series.
