    Description

    1927 Fro-Joy Gene Tunney SGC Graded Complete Set (6) Plus Rare Premium! Fro-joy ice cream produced a 6-card set, featuring the idol of children everywhere - Babe Ruth. Ask dad who he admired and boxing great Gene Tunney would draw more than a few responses. Fro-joy cards from the Tunney version are much more challenging to obtain than their Ruth counterparts. 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." This rarely seen premium is also included. Surface damage/staining and one small piece missing, presents (FR). Includes: Graded - SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, #'s 3 Portrait and 5 Flexing Arm (Pop Four, Highest Known); SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 4 cards, #'s 1 Full figure/Front (Pop Three, One Higher), 2 Full figure/Side, 4 Portrait/Street Clothes and 6 In Boxing Ring. A scarce chance to buy this complete set and the advertised premium.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
