Default New find! Killer general store find!!!

An old General store closed near the Pittsburgh area. The contents was auctioned by a small auction house on auction zip. Low and behold!

Some killer stuff was available but only 1 sports item.

A 1939 Clopay Foto Fun partial box with 30+ unopened packs!!!!!!!!


HOW FARGING COOL IS THIS????????

A killer tough issue that is not very popular but is a set I have been working on for about 30 years.

A MAJOR find for the HOBBY and the ONLY KNOWN display box!

Enjoy the pictures my friends:

Dan

Default Congrats!!

Love that box Dan. Great and very obscure set. Maybe the box will tell us some more about the set? Congrats!! And here is an example of an unopened pack and an opened one, for members to see (not from your find of course).

Thanks for the kind words Leon! I was like a kid in a candy store when I took this home! No pun intended.

Leon,

Out of sheer curiosity, why the diversion from your trusty Franklin Half Dollar? I happen to have a Morgan Dollar waitng in the wings, and was considering posting photos with this included with your permission...

Best,

Eric
