Among the most coveted and desirable premiums of the 1930s are found in the offered 1938 Gum Inc. Lone Ranger 8x10 complete set of (5) pictures. While single copies are scarce, finding a complete series makes an already difficult proposition that much more daunting. Noted for their intricate detail, intense vibrant colors and powerful imagery, these premiums were issued either with blank backs or with advertising text. Included in this mid-grade selection are 1.) ”Tonto Saves the Lone Ranger” (GD-VG, blank-backed); 2.) ”The Lone Ranger Rescues Joan at the Pit” (VG/VG-EX, blank-backed); 3.) ”The Lone Ranger Licks Kester” (VG, advertisement back); 4.) ”Tonto Fights Off the Troopers” (VG-EX, advertisement back) and 5.) The Lone Ranger Foils a Murderer” (GD-VG, advertisement back). With only corner creasing, relatively even corner wear and superb surfaces, this complete set is a winner.
