R114 1933 U.s. Caramels Presidents, Franklin Pierce Rare, Popular Card For Sale
This week I'm offering a number of old non-sport cards from various vintage sets. In 1933, U.S. Caramel issued any early non-sport gumcard set, officially titled "American Heroes" but known to collectors as the U.S. Caramel Presidents set. It consisted of 31 different cards showcasing all the Presidents from George Washington to Franklin Roosevelt - Roosevelt was the 32nd President, but there were only 31 cards because, as we all learned in school, Grover Cleveland is considered both the 22nd and the 24th President. However, U.S. Carmel threw collectors a curve - because they offered a one pound box of chocolates to anyone sending in a complete set, they short-printed one card. Today, there are only two cards of William McKinley known to exist, making it just about the rarest non-sport card in the hobby! Therefore, the set is considered complete at 30 cards.
Here is a nice example from the set, depicting Franklin Pierce, the 14th President. The card has the two upper corners clipped and also has a crease, but is otherwise is pretty nice condition for an eighty-year old card (see scans for condition). This would be a terrific addition to any collection!
Payment is via PayPal; shipping is $2 for First Class Mail, and postage will be combined for multiple winnings.
