Description

    1936 R65 Goudey "History of Aviation" Near Set (8/10). These 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" "cards" are actually pages designed to be 2-hole punched and saved in some type of book or album. The fronts are very colorful illustrations of famous aviators with a tale of personal glory up in the wild blue yonder on the reverse. The set was made to educate and promote aviation which was improving with each passing year. Missing #'s 2 and 4 for completion. The very scarce 8-card near set includes: #'s 1 Howard Hughes (VG/EX), 3 Wiley Post, 5 Richard Byrd, 6 Willie Mae, 7 Hughes' Record, 8 Lindbergh's "Spirit of St. Louis," 9 "Over The North Pole With Byrd" and 10 Wings Over the Pacific. All are unpunched. Grades EX to EX/MT with a couple nice and one slightly lesser.

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