Description



Advanced non-sport collectors advance your collection with this 1936 R60 Gum Inc. "G-Men & Heroes of the Law" complete set of (168) cards, including (6) PSA graded rare/scarce "Group 5 - left hand lows" cards. This extremely challenging series was produced in skip-number fashion and the elusive high numbers are among the rarest of non-sport issues, resulting in one of the toughest sets to finish. On the infrequent occasions that this set is offered complete, the rare high numbers are usually in the lowest condition. In this remarkable case, the tables are turned with the high numbers presenting among the best examples in this set.

 

With a tip of the cap to the dauntless collector who assembled this set, we acknowledge this is the finest G-Men collection to have ever crossed our path. Featuring dynamic images and sensational text revolving around real-life characters, this series recalls some of the most notorious criminals of the 1920s "Prohibition" era and 1930s "Great Depression" era, along with the brave lawmen who brought them to justice. Truly a golden opportunity to skip the painstaking task of hunting these cards down one at a time, this highly desirable set is worthy of the utmost consideration.
