    1936 R301 Overland Candy Collection (63) With DiMaggio, Foxx and Gehrig!. Among the baseball issues known for their scarcity are not cards but the wrappers by Overland Candy in 1936. Designated R301, even a single example of these paper-thin collectibles is missing from many vintage collections. This is an almost unheard of assembly of 63 wrappers containing 35 different players. All have been mounted and removed with paper backing remnants and have been hand-cut to about 5" x 3". All are in poor condition but offer a lengthy selection of stars and HoFers including Appling (2), Averill (3), Cavaretta, Dickey (2), Joe DiMaggio (3), Ferrell (2), Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig, Gehringer (2), Lefty Grove (3), Hemsley (3), Lazzeri (2), Lyons (2), Mize, Rolfe, Rowe, Simmons (2) and Vosmik (2). In many instances, player duplication is minimized by color variations.
