Fleer's "Three Stooges" sets continue to grow in popularity. When the color set was issued in 1959, their movie shorts were being introduced for the first time to a new generation of youngsters on television, and the response was as positive and enthusiastic as when the trio first attained stardom in the 1930s. Their newfound popularity revitalized their careers, giving the Stooges a second chance to entertain millions with feature-length movies, personal appearances, and many other projects. Their shorts, which were originally produced to be shown as a bonus with feature films at movie theaters, are still shown on television today, ensuring a legion of new fans in each new generation, and promoting The Stooges' status as American icons of comedy. From the Macaluso Collection. Total 922 cards, three display boxes, 30 unopened packs, and 30 wrappers. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,640.00
