    Description

    1911 T38 United Cigar "The Aviators" (White Backs) Complete Set (25). 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 that were produced have backs that are printed in black on an all-white card tock. Copy errors led to the production of a second variety where gold covers most of the reverse side of the cards. The "White Back" variety are noticeably tougher to find and rarely available as a complete set. This presentation offers a complete 25-card set of this scarcer variant. Five cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: SGC 60 EX 5: 3 cards, Paulham, Weyman and 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).
