    Description

    1925 W529-1 Anonymous Boxing Complete Sets Pair (2) - Both Versions. One of the last mysterious groups of cards are the "W" issues produced from the late-teens to the early-1930's by various firms. These elusive issues circulated in sheets or 10-card strips to be cut apart by consumers. With that, it is no surprise that intact strips are rare. Offered are both versions of the W529 series. The set includes such name as Kilbane, Dempsey, Leonard and Carpentier. Both are in the form of intact strips of all ten subjects. Both are #'d 1-10 but for some reason the same ten boxers were printed backwards (left-handed boxers are shown right handed) and in reverse order. Kilbane is card #1 on one strip but is card #10 on the other. The copyright logo and "IFC" initials are reversed one of the strips. Both are in Good condition. One strip is miscut with name along the top. A fascinating insight into production and a great lot for putting up on display.
