    1927 F52 Fro- Joy Gene Tunney SGC- Graded Trio (3). Vintage hobbyists are well aware of the Fro-joy set which features baseball legend Babe Ruth. Due to their elevated level of rarity, far fewer are aware that a 6-card set was produced featuring boxing great Gene Tunney. Single examples from this elusive series are very difficult to acquire let alone the opportunity for multiple items or a complete set. As advertised on the reverse of each card, the set was issued during the week of July 18th-23rd, 1927 and offered the same exchange option of sending in cards for "large reproduction of Gene's Tunney's autographed photo." The lot includes: #'s 3 Gene Tunney/Portrait Without Shirt (SGC 10 PR 1), 4 Gene Tunney/Portrait In Suit (SGC 20 FR 1.5) and 5 Gene Tunney/Glove Face Level (SGC 10 PR 1). Clearly, each card presents much higher than the technical grade. Assessments are due to a small pin hole in each.
