    1937 F277 Heinz "Famous Aviators" Premiums Near Set (3/4). If you have never seen a Heinz premium before feel safe knowing you are not alone. The 13-1/8" x 8-7/8" thin paper premiums are about as rare as mail-in premiums can be. Their rarity is famous among vintage specialists. Each Famous Aviator premium is an enlarged version of one of the Heinz F277 cards. The set is comprised of only four pieces but their rarity made a complete checklist known only decades later. Includes are: #'s 3 Capt. "Eddie" Rickenbacker, 4 Col. Roscoe Turner and 10 Louise Thaden (one of a pioneering group of female pilots at the time). The central images have survived for the most part unscathed. Thaden has some light soiling, largely limited to the outer frame but no creases or wrinkles; Turner has a couple very small specks of staining and a couple brief and very light creases, again, affecting outer portions; Rickenbacker has one crease in the right border, light soiling and EX to EX/MT corners. Professionally framed and matted these would make for an amazing wall display and bragging rights among the non-sports hobbyists.
