1935 R311-2 National Chicle Football Glossy Premiums Collection (7)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $823
Collection of seven very scarce 1930s football premiums issued by National Chicle Gum. Each glossy premium measures 6 x 8 inches, and the set features both professional and collegiate players. These large premiums have often been overlooked by collectors. The R311-2 football premiums are much rarer than their baseball counterparts. This issue cannot be easily assembled in set form; all of the premiums in the set are rare, so much so that when seen, they are noticeably striking and unusual even to the eye of advanced collectors. The collection is comprised of the following: Red Grange (Vg), 1934 Chicago Bears Western Champs (Vg), 1934 New York Giants World's Champs (Vg), Notre Dame's Quick Kick (Gd-Vg), Pittsburgh vs. Navy (Vg), Casey (Gd due to scrapbook removal on blank reverse, much nicer front), and Yale vs. Dartmouth (Vg). All are bright and clean, most with appearance far superior to the technically accurate assigned grades. This is a very attractive collection of this elusive 1930s football premium issue. Total: 7 premiums. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
