Lot 200. F7 1953 Dixie Lid Movie star sheet with 272 lids and includes 4 complete sets of 24 cards.
Minimum Bid $750 This huge sheet, which measures 41“ x 39 1/2“ shows 16 rows down and 17+ columns cross. Part of an 18^{th} column can be seen at the right and it could be surmised that the entire sheet had 20 columns when printed. The 24 card Dixie Lid set consists of mostly Movie stars and entertainers, but does include 2 personalities which could be considered athletes. i.e. Esther Williams and Johnny Weismuller. More prominent personalities in the set are Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Milton Berle, John Wayne and Debbie Reynolds. As the sheet stands now, there are 8 complete sets among the 272 lids. If there were 20 columns printed, there still would have been 8 complete sets, and 320 lids. The short prints, which are apparently unknown to current price guides are Sid Caesar, Tony Curtis, Allen Lane, Audie Murphy, Jane Russell, Forrest Tucker, John Wayne and Johnny Weismuller, which were issued in a 1:2 ration to the other cards. The sheet is basically in excellent condition. Minimum Bid $750.
