The complete set of 24 cards is presented. These small (1-1/8" x 2-1/8") trading cards recall the days, long ago, when one could step on a dime-store scale and receive a trading card along with one's weight information. The cards comprising this set deliver remarkably bright and detailed color illustrations of "speedy" men, animals and vehicles. The highlight of the issue is card #5, featuring legendary Olympian Jesse Owens; the Owens example in the offered set has been graded NM 7 by PSA. Overall condition is EX to NM, with a few nicer or lesser.
