    1935 National Chicle Complete Set. The mid-1930's was a golden age for trading card design, with Goudeys, Diamond Stars and these National Chicles ranking near the top of many collectors' wish lists due to their fine artistry and the legendary talent they portray. But these Depression-era issues can be tough to locate, making this rare offering of a complete set of thirty-six cards a real treat for those who share our appreciation of the National Chicle set. With this first great football issue booking at five-figures in EX condition and climbing close to a quarter-million when Mint, our selection of well-loved but solid Good cards may be your only chance to get in on the fun at a relatively reasonable price. Nagurski, the key card in the set, is also one of its finest here, with a tiny pinhole at the top and bottom all that prohibits a VG rating. Rockne shows a bit more corner wear, and is slabbed in an SGC Good 30 holder, the only encapsulated card in the set. The balance of the set offers similar condition traits to this pair. Not the most pristine cards on the block, but still loaded with collector appeal.
