This is an exceptional collection of eighteen extremely high quality Canadian nonsport sets, issued in the 1950s and 1960s. Crisp and clean throughout, these are the sets personally assembled by a very dedicated collector, with an emphasis on overall eye-appeal. These sets are scarce, overlooked, and undervalued. This is a great nonsport-card collecting opportunity as these sets would no doubt cost a lot more to duplicate than whatever they will sell for here, not to mention the time and effort that would be expended. This a beautiful collection. Total 986 cards representing eighteen different sets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
