1933 R39 Dare Devils Uncut Proof Sheet

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $4,025.00

This is the only uncut sheet of Dare Devils known to exist. This sheet was part of the legendary find of materials from the National Chicle Company which surfaced approximately 25 years ago. Included in the find were original artworks for the National Chicle Football series, artwork from several non-sport issues including Sky Birds and Dare Devils, a small number of Diamond Star baseball artworks, and a very few uncut sheets. (All of the National Chicle artworks in the hobby originate from this find.) This was the only Dare Devil sheet from the find. Included on the sheet are 12 cards (all of which are the rarer low numbers 1 thru 12) representing exactly half of the 24 card set. The brilliant colors, sharp details and fascinating subject of this issue matter make Dare Devils one the most popular of all 1930s non-sport sets. They are also highly regarded for their rarity. This is a beautiful proof sheet, complete with printer's marks in the extra large margins. As is always the case with proof sheets, the backs are blank. Extremely impressive looking, significant, and unique 1930s uncut sheet. Ideal for display and really a gem in every way. Excellent to Mint. Reserve $800. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,025.00
