Description:
1932 Walker's Cleaners Green Bay Packers Premium Photographs Complete Set with Binder (27). The most storied team in professional football history captured its third straight league championship in 1931 behind the strong leadership of coach Curly Lambeau and the elite talent of four players who eventually landed a permanent spot in Canton's Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Here we present the "Holy Grail" of Green Bay Packers memorabilia, the 1932 Walker's Cleaners photograph premiums set. The 1931 Champs are presented on heavy cardboard stock, measuring at approximately 8 x 10" and splendidly displayed in the original "Walker Packer Series" folder (VG-EX,with a 6" tear fixed on the inside page). Demonstrating the intense scarcity of this historic piece of sports nostalgia, this is the first time a complete Walker's Packers set has been offered at public auction.

All twenty-seven pieces are included in this exceedingly rare collection, including the extremely tough E.L. "Curly" Lambeau (w/info sheet) photograph and others: Frank Baker (w/info sheet), Russ Sanders (w/info sheet), Wuert Englemann (w/info sheet), Hank Bruder (w/info sheet), Waldo Don Carlos, Roger Grove (w/info sheet), Mike Michalske, Milton Gantenbein, LaVerne Dilweg, Verne Lewellen, Red Dunn (w/info sheet), Johnny Blood McNally (w/info sheet), Jug Earp, Arnie Herber, Dick Stahlman (w/info sheet), Red Sleight, Rudy Comstock (w/info sheet), Jim Bowdoin, Hurdis McCrary, Bo Molenda, Cal Hubbard, Paul Fitzgibbon, Tom Nash (w/info sheet), Mule Wilson (w/info sheet), Whitey Woodin (w/info sheet, left side trimmed), and Nate Barragar.

For the sake of full disclosure, we note that the information sheet is affixed with transparent tape to the verso of the following images: Lambeau, Baker, Saunders, Englemann, Carlos, Lewellen, Dunn, Herber, Sleight, Comstock, Fitzgibbon, Nash, Wilson and the inside page of the binder. The typical light toning, and minor wrinkles are present on the interior images, while averaging an impressive EX in quality. Many advanced collectors have never even seen one example from this elusive issue, so we anticipate that this complete collection will turn the heads of not only serious gridiron collectors, but the majority of cultured experts from the sports collecting arena.
