1933 Goudey R142 "Soldier Boys" Complete Set Uncut Sheet (24)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,035.00
The colorful Soldiers Boys set was issued with Goudey's "Soldier Boy Chewing Gum." The 24-card set features "Colorful, thrilling pictures of Soldiers and Flags of All Nations." As tough as this set is to find as a complete set, offered is a complete set in a 24-card uncut sheet, which is perhaps the rarest and most ideal form possible. This is a complete final process sheet with backs fully printed. We have never seen another sheet of this 1930s issue, though it is possible others exist. The sheet has neat, clean staple holes in the upper right and left corners which are often found on uncut sheets which originate from Goudey's files, related to how sample sheets were saved by the company. It is a virtual certainty that this sheet was once a part of the Goudey archives. Technically Vg-Ex, the sheet has some minor imperfections which include some light creasing (primarily in the upper corners) and corner wear, but the sheet displays beautifully, and when framed it will present as if in Excellent condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,035.00
