Description

Mixed among the industry standard baseball and football issues of the same years, the Leaf Gum Company produced a boxing-oriented set containing fifty subjects for the avid pugilist enthusiast. The offered near set of vividly colorful cards is generally considered complete at (49) cards due to the extremely scarce Rocky Graziano card. The presented set, which has (48) of the (49) cards missing the Graziano and #32 Schmeling, offers a wide variant of condition with (7) high-grade PSA cards.
