    1933-34 R316 National Chicle "Sky Birds" Charles Lindbergh #36 Original Artwork and Card! In the 1970's a tremendous collection of artwork was discovered that originated from the family of a National Chicle employee. It was nothing less than an astonishing find that brought to the hobby over 150 pieces of original National Chicle artwork used to create the cards we so passionately pursue. Without this discovery, art work from these vintage series was close to impossible to acquire. Even today the opportunity to find one at auction is very rare. Once these treasured pieces find their way into private hands they have a tendency to stay there for years and years.

    From that find we are pleased to present the original artwork for card #36 from the "Sky Birds" series featuring Charles Lindbergh. For the non-sport enthusiast, Lindbergh is the "Babe Ruth" of the aviator based edition. Charles Lindbergh is a revered American Aviator who is as famous for making the first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean on May 20-21, 1927 as he is for the infamous trail for the kidnapping and murder of his infant son.

    The artwork was created on thick illustration board and measures approx. 4-5/8 x 5-3/4 inches. Joining the unique piece is an approx. excellent condition of the final card. This is a fantastic addition to any non-sports card collection. Collecting the cards is a fun and satisfying pastime. Adding advertising, a wrapper or a box are rare and truly elevate a collection. Adding a piece of 100% unique art brings one to elite status. Both are double matted to an overall size of 16-1/4" x 12-1/4" inches and comes ready for hanging.
