    1935 Schutter-Johnson Candy Near Set (39/50) - #2 on the PSA Set Registry. This is the #2 set on the "All-Time Finest" list on the PSA Set Registry with a 4.9 GPA. This 50-card set entitled "Major League Secrets" was issued by the Schutter-Johnson Candy Corp. of Chicago and Brooklyn. The cards feature cartoon drawings of major league players offering baseball playing tips. You'll find names like Gehrig, Ruth, Mathewson, Hornsby, Alexander, Cochrane, Simmons, etc. This obscure series is rarely offered as a complete set or in quantity. This presentation has many of the finest examples graded by PSA. Eleven cards are "Pop One with None Higher" title holders. Eight more are tied as the highest graded examples. The only thing that makes scarce cards offered in quantity even more enticing is condition and this set delivers.
