Item Description
The 24 cards in this set are numbered 97-120 as numbering continued from the standard set of 96 cards. However, these cards are much rarer making them one of the most desirable and elusive gum card sets of any era. The cards are rare due to licensing issues concerning the likenesses of the stars used on the cards so these cards had a very short distribution run. Issued in 1935 by Gum Inc. (see promo items #2666-2667). ACC# R90. Card fronts feature choice art of Mickey w/a movie star done in caricature style. Backs have text relating to the front image/star w/a blank line where the star's name was to be filled in. All backs remain unused. Stars include: Groucho & Harpo Marx, Charlie Chaplin, Mae West, Jimmy Durante, Laurel & Hardy, Edward G. Robinson, Greta Garbo, Eddie Cantor and more. All cards have been graded by SGC and designated as being from the "Maurice Sendak Collection" and set comes w/Hake's COA. Grades and number of cards per grade are: 80 EX/NM 6 (2), 70 EX+ 5.5 (4), 60 EX 5 (8), 55 VG/EX+ 4.5 (6), 50 VG/EX 4 (3), 45 VG+ 3.5 (1). An overall exceptional set further enhanced by being from one of the greatest Disneyana collections ever assembled and documented as such by SGC. An item highly and equally coveted by Non-Sport and Disney collectors. See items #2666-2667.
