    1934-36 R327 National Chicle Diamond Stars High-Grade Near Complete Set (96/108). During the Golden age of the 1930's bubble gum card era National Chicle conceived the Diamond Star set as a competitor to the popular Goudey issue. This classic set exhibits original artwork with an art deco feel of the era. The set was popular however it was facing an uphill battle due to the fact that Goudey had locked up the rights to produce cards for the two biggest stars of the era: Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Still, this set has no shortage of Hall of Famers with the inclusion of Ott, Hornsby, Waner, Foxx, etc. The offered Diamond Star partial set has survived the decades in miraculously good condition and consists of the three of the four series in the issue, only missing (12) cards from the fourth series numbers 97 to 108. A total of 45 cards have been graded by SGC with an aggregate SMR value of $19,250. Includes: Graded Cards - SGC 96 MINT 9: 3 cards w/ # 76, 86, 91 Harris.
