(LOT 408)
Rare 1933 Goudey R309-1 Premiums Complete Set (4) with Easels and Mailing Envelope

Offered is a rare complete set of 1933 R309-1 Goudey Premium cards commemorating the first ever Midsummer Classic including team photos of the "American League All Stars", the "National League All Stars", the 1933 "Worlds Champions" New York Giants (issued later in 1933 after the World Series). But the true prize of the set is the game's greatest player "George Herman (Babe) Ruth". These highly visual, gold-framed cards, printed on heavy paper stock, measure 5-1/2" x 8-13/16" with a collapsible display easel on the back of each for display. The team photos show expected minor edge, surface and corner wear with inconsequential chipping along the gold frame border. The back easels remain virtually unused and unfolded – completely intact. Slight residual of attached paper and tape visible; minor paper loss & soiling; example of print bleed-thru on the reverses. The Ruth example displays some corner and edge wear and chipping with a small surface mark at right. The reverse also has remnants of paper removal and tape residue. The Mailing Envelope is in overall EX+ condition. Overall VG-EX for Ruth.
