Description

This collection of (14) cards from the 1955 Aetnna and Ashland Oils series has an emphasis on college cagers from the states of West Virginia and Kentucky. With a composite grade of (VG-EX) with some better and others lesser, this obscure issue was passed out by gas station attendants in and around the Appalachian region. None of the players ever reached the NBA; however, an abundance of schools are present. Also present are four graded pieces which have been evaluated either by SGC or GAI. Included are Kentucky: Adkins (SGC 70), Grawemeyer (VG-EX); Louisville: Darrah (EX), Glaza (VG), Harrah (VG/VG-EX), Moreman (GAI 3.5), Rollins (VG-EX), Shackelford (EX); Marshall: Crum (SGC 50); West Virginia: Kishbaugh (SGC 40); Western: Cole (EX), Daniels (VG-EX), Harned (VG-EX) and Weber (VG). Aside from the four graded pieces with Ashland advertisement backs, the rest have Aetna reverses. This group is a perfect accompaniment for the regional basketball collector.
