Description

    1911 T38 United Cigar "The Aviators" Complete Master Set (50). Issued less than a decade after the Wright brothers made their famous flight, the United Cigar Store Co. produced "The Aviators" in 1911. The first cards produced have white backs with black print and although these men were considered the "rock stars" of the era, identification and information wasn't precise as there are known errors. What to do? Start over, no. Just add a thick layer of metallic gold ink and print over the gold. This explains why the white back cards are noticeably tougher to find and rarely available as a complete set. This presentation offers complete 25-card sets of both versions. Eight cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: 1911 T38 The Aviators - White (25) - SGC 60 EX 5: 3 cards, Paulham,Weyman, White; SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5: 2 cards, Harmon and Henry. Grades 44% VG to EX, 56% lesser (some just due to glue residue on the reverse. 1911 T38 The Aviators - Gold (25) - w/Farman (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), Johnstone (SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5, Roe (SGC 60 EX 5). Grades VG to EX with a few lesser.

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