This group almost defies belief in the extraordinary quality of virtually every card! When we first received this set we looked at each card several times, thinking they must have been copied or somehow altered – that’s how fresh almost every card looks! This near set of 104 (of 108) includes every card except #’s 70, 90, 107 and 108. Grading very strictly, 70% of the cards are EX-MT to NM (or better), 20% EX, and only 10% lesser. PSA graded cards include: NM 7.5 #23 Richthofen; NM 7 #36 Lindbergh; EX-Mt+ 6.5 #20 Rickenbacker; EX-Mt 6 #72 Spirit of St. Louis; EX 5 #32 Doolittle and #49 Wright. Specials are as follows: #1 (EX), #20 Rickenbacker (NM), #23 Von Richthofen (EX-MT), #32 Doolittle (NM), #36 Lindbergh (NM), #48 Earhart (VG-EX, crease), #49 Wright (NM-MT), #62 Post (EX-MT) and #72 Spirit of St. Louis (EX-MT). About half the cards have a slight border discoloration due to aging, but are otherwise exceptionally clean, as are the backs. Find the missing 4 cards, upgrade a couple more, then sit back and enjoy owning a world-class copy of this iconic set!
