    1933 E285 Rittenhouse Candy SGC-Graded Complete Set (52). Wondering when was the last time a complete 52-card set of 1933 E285 Rittenhouse Candy baseball cards was presented at auction? We don't recall one and have not found one in our databases of auction results. This series was a late to the game edition for "E" cards. By design, they could be used to play card games and they acted as entries where using letters printed on the backs to spell out "RITTENHOUSE CANDY CO." could be exchanged for some great prizes including a Buck Rogers gun, a First Base mitt, Fielders glove, skates, a telescope or a microscope. Both are valid reasons why modern hobbyists find this set is so difficult to find. Includes: SGC EX/NM 6: 1 card, Critz/I; SGC EX+ 5.5: 6 cards, Bottomley/S, Brickell/A, Cihocki/R, Cronin/A, Hurst/D and H. Wilson-Clubs/R; SGC EX 5: 22 cards, Bartell/U, Bishop/S, Collins/A, Cuyler/R, Davis/Ad, Dykes/S, Earnshaw/Ad, Elliot/Y, Frisch-7Spades/S, Frisch-3Spades/Ad, Herman/Y, Hornsby/U, Hurst/Ad, Mancuso/Ad, Miller/S, Simmons/Y, Terry/Y, Walberg/R, P.
