This is a 1933 Goudey Indian Gum Almost Complete Set.  The number of cards, their grades, and scans are contained in the description below.

The 1933 Goudey Indian Gum Cards (R73) are perhaps some of the most complex non-sports cards issues of the 1930's. They were printed periodically from 1933-1940 by the Goudey Gum Co. of Boston, Massachusetts. The 1933 Goudey Indian Gum Complete Sets have a possible 216 cards, but are nearly impossible to find.  The cards are numbered and measure 2 3/8” by 2 7/8” in size, but has 432 cards when all of the variations are considered.  

The colorful Goudey Indian Gum Set was released from 1933 to 1940 and tells the history of the American west with cards featuring chiefs, warriors, soldiers, and telling about various tribes, rituals and battles.  The cards are numbered from 1 to 216, but the card backs indicate a possible of 8 different series sizes.

The Indian Gum cards numbered 110 to 152 weren't initially released. Goudey later released these cards and reused the artwork from cards #1 through #24. As a result, the Indian Gum Set has 216 differently numbered cards, but only 192 different pictures. The 1933 Goudey Indian Gum variations that state “series of 288 cards” are the toughest to find.

All of the card backs contain text in green, however, there are numerous variations when it comes to referencing the number of cards in the set.  The line that reads "This is one of a series of '#' cards varies from #'s 24, 48, 96, 192, 216, 264, 288, and 312. 


This near complete set contains 167 cards out of the possible 216 cards. This is not a complete set.
