Complete 80-card set of this landmark Fleer issue, devoted to the career and life of "The Splendid Splinter." The set includes a beautiful NM example of rare card #68 "Ted Signs," which features Ted with Red Sox General Manager Bucky Harris (himself a Hall of Famer). This card was withdrawn from production due to legal issues relating to Fleer's unauthorized use of Harris' image. Condition is 53% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 33% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 14% lesser (mostly Vg to Vg-Ex and including one with a possible slight trim). We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Early Years (Vg-Ex), 2 Williams/Ruth (Ex), 11 Williams/Foxx (Vg-Ex), 17 Ted Hit .400 (NM/MT+ 8.5), 39 Williams/Cronin/E. Collins (Nr/Mt), 63 All-Star Record (NM/MT 8), 67 Williams/Snead (Nr/Mt-Mt), 68 Ted Signs (NM 7), 70 Williams/Thorpe (Ex), 75 Williams/Ruth/Collins (Nr/Mt), and 80 Ted's Goals (Vg-Ex+). Included is an original wrapper in Very Good condition. Very sharp looking set! Total: 80 cards plus wrapper. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
