Complete 80-card set (plus three duplicates) of this landmark Fleer issue, devoted to the career and life of "The Splendid Splinter." The set includes a beautiful EX-MT 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 This card was withdrawn from production due to legal issues relating to Fleer's unauthorized use of Harris' image.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 35% Nr/Mt or better (mostly Nr/Mt), 39% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 26% Vg to Vg-Ex (including some due solely to centering). Five cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Early Years (Vg), 2 Williams/Ruth (Vg+), 11 Williams/Foxx (25/75 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 17 Ted Hit .400 (Vg), three 18 1941 - All Star Hero (MINT 9 and two NM-MT 8), 39 Williams/Cronin/E. Collins (Nr/Mt), 63 All-Star Record (Ex), 67 Williams/Snead (Nr/Mt), 68 Ted Signs (EX-MT 6), 70 Williams/Thorpe (Ex), two 75 Williams/Ruth/Collins (NM-MT 8 and Ex-Mt), and 80 Ted's Goals (75/25 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). Very sharp looking set! The total SMR value for just the five PSA-graded cards is $615. Total: 83 cards (complete set of 80 plus three duplicates). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
