Offered is a 1959 3 Stooges unopened wax pack graded GAI 9.5 Gem Mint from the first set of Stooges inspired trading cards by the F.H. Fleer company. The series was made up of 96 cards all featuring colorized scenes from many of their Columbia shorts. Underneath each picture was a one-liner representative of the scene being depicted. On the back sides were short pieces of Stooge trivia or comical quotes - penned by Elwood Ullman, an already seasoned writer for the Stooges. Cards number 1, 2, and 3 feature head shots of Curly, Moe and Larry, and are the most sought after cards in the series. Also particularly popular were specially printed cards with checklists on the reverse side. This particular pack boasts a box fresh appearance that includes brilliant color, spotless surfaces, and a crisp wrapper. One of the finest specimens of its type to be found.
