Rarely seen complete set of sixteen original 1952 Fleet-Wing Cleveland Indians picture premiums housed in their original album. Issued as promotional vehicle for Fleet-Wing service stations, each premium measures approximately 6 x 9 inches and features popular Indians team members in a combination of action and portrait poses. The images for several of the cards are noted to coincide with those used for the Num-Num Potato Chips set, another scarce Cleveland regional issue. The album, which is one of only a handful we have seen, features "Facts About Your Indians," with biographical and statistical information about the players, Including Hall of Famers Bob Feller, Larry Doby, and Bob Lemon. Condition of the premiums ranges from Very Good to Excellent. They are held together at the base by vintage tape positioned in such a way that it is entirely unobtrusive and does not detract from the overall presentation value of the album and premiums. The album displays bold original colors and bears two illegible signatures on the front cover along with a "1952" notation in pencil. This is a scarce regional issue that is sure to be of great interest to Cleveland Indians collectors. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
