    1930's R135-1 United Candy "Beautiful Ships" Complete Set (24) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry with an 82.2 GPA. Each back displays the reverse which offers in exchange for 10 wrappers of Sailor Boy Smokes and 10-cents for a specially designed album to house the cards. This obscure and very colorful series was advertised as a series of 48 but to date only the first series of 24 cards seems to have ever been produced. A lack of sales, no pun intended, could explain the non-existent second series. Rarely offered as a complete set, this 24-card complete set includes: SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 3 cards, #'s 5 Santa Maria, 13 Clipper Ship, 16 Mississippi Steamboat; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 6 cards, #'s 7 Mayflower, 11 Clermont, 12 Savannah, 15 Chinese Junk, 17 Gloucester Fisherman, 21 South Pole Ship; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 3 cards, #'s 6 Early English, 18 Modern Liner, 19 Racing Yacht; SGC 84 NM 7: 8 cards, #'s 2 Greek Ship, 3 Roman Merchant, 4 Viking Ship, 8 Old Pirate Boat, 9 Late English, 10 U.S.S.
