Default Important New Find - I think

Posted By: Paul

One of the rarest 1930's sets is the Tarzan Thoro Bread set (D382). Well, this sucker just popped up on ebay. I lost, probably to Leon. The front is identical to a Tarzan card. But the back advertises Trophy Thoro Bread. The style of the back is otherwise identical to the Tarzan cards. Anyone ever see another one of these?

Paul,

This is clearly in the wrong thread. All Leon bashing belongs in the "One That Got Away" thread.

You know how messy it gets when we have two threads going on the same subject!

It looks like the red "TROPHY" part of the back is a label that has been attached to cover the "Tarzan" advertisement. I can't say I have ever seen that before, interesting card.

Well I just held my little black light up to the image of the card's back, and it fluoresced big time!!! So I'm glad Leon won it. I look forward to seeing him post a scan of the front with a Texas quarter aside.


Seriously, nice find.

I tell ya' it's a conspiracy out here. I get no respect. That is most likely a store advertisement sticker over the Tarzan wording. That is what another board member and I talked about earlier this evening...and that was my thought. I will let ya'll know when it comes in happy.gif....

Wow. I'm glad I lost. I'd like a Tarzan card, but I'd rather have one without the sticker.
