I'm looking for the 1938 NX5 American Sweets boxing cards. I am willing to pay top prices for them. Yeah ... yeah ... I know there are only a handful of them out there, but hey, I gotta' try, right?

Please send me a PM if you think you can help.

Thanks


Picture is for display purposes only. I don't own any of these cards.

Hi Rocky!

They're hand-cut, but I am not sure if this was done in the factory or by a collector at a later date. Also, the Leonard card (owned by Adam) is the only one to receive a numerical grade from SGC, I believe. Does this mean that this one was not hand-cut? It's all very confusing!

By the way, there are wrestlers in this set as well. If you look at the image I posted above, you will see Jim Londos on the top. I also found this image online of Man Mountain Dean:

I had never seen the Man Mountain Dean card before. That thing is awesome.

Here is the Joe Gans card that was sold by PWCC a year ago. I usually wear the same kind of outfit whenever someone challenges me to a fight. The guy will usually take one good look at me and say "okay, you win."

Default Strip cards?

The more I study these cards, the more confused I get!



This is Tony Canzoneri and that nasty top edge is something frequently seen on American strip cards. Here is another:



If you look at this Mickey Walker card, you'll see that it suffers from the same problem. Hmmmm ... oh wait!



Huh? A freaking wrapper! So, now they can't be strip cards, right?

And here we have the Benny Leonard card. This is the only card to receive a numerical grade, I believe. Where did the bottom border go?
