1937 & 1938 Dixie Lids Baseball Premiums Complete Sets (2)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,044.00
Complete set of all eight 1937-1938 Dixie Lid premium baseball players. These full-color large-format premiums were issued in conjunction with the round 1937 and 1938 Dixie Cup Lid ice-cream top series. The beautiful artwork and rich color of the premiums make them one of the most striking and distinctive of all 1930s issues. They are also quite rare. However, considering how substantial they are, Dixie Lid premiums have received very little attention from collectors, in part due to the fact that they are so large compared to standard cards, and also because they cannot be encapsulated for grading. A case could be made that they represent one of the best values among all 1930s issues. The 1937 and 1938 Dixie Lid premium sets each feature twenty-four subjects, including four baseball players in each set. (Other subjects include various entertainers and two football stars in each set.) Presented are all four baseball players from each set (plus the two football premiums from the 1938 set). 1) 1937 Dixie Lids Premiums Complete Baseball Set (4): Charlie Gehringer (Ex-Mt), Gabby Hartnett (Ex-Mt), Carl Hubbell (Ex-Mt), Joe Medwick (Vg-Ex/Ex+). 2) 1938 Dixie Lids Premiums Complete Sport Set (6): Bob Feller (Ex-Mt), Jimmy Foxx (Ex-Mt), Carl Hubbell (Vg-Ex), Wally Moses (Ex), Sammy Baugh/football (Vg due to small tear at hole punch, otherwise Ex), Bronko Nagurski (Ex). Total 10 premiums (eight baseball and two football). Reserve $200. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,044.00
