Collecting the 1932 U.S. Caramel Trading Card Set – From Bobby Jones to Babe Ruth, an Overshadowed, Vintage Multi-Sport Issue
 
Before the 1933 Goudey Sport Kings came along, one that covered a wide variety of sports figures, the 1932 U.S. Caramel set made its debut. Featuring the top stars in baseball such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx, the set also included the likes of Bobby Jones from the world of golf and Jack Dempsey from the world of boxing. In the following article, we dig deeper into this 32-card release that packs a serious punch despite its modest size.

Collecting the 1934-36 Batter-Up Baseball Card Set (R318) – National Chicle Takes Its (Die) Cuts in the Baseball Market
 
The 1934-36 Batter-Up baseball card set features many familiar names inside a not-so-familiar format. Unlike most standard baseball card issues, these cards were made with a die-cut design. The images on the front could be "popped out" so the card could be propped up.

Collecting the 1933 World Wide Gum Sea Raiders Trading Card Set – A Vintage Non-Sports Treasure
 
If you like eye appeal, you will love the 1933 Sea Raiders set. Filled with colorful artwork, the set contains shots of pirates, their ships, and action sequences. The design is not an unfamiliar one either. The cards have a similar look to the 1933 Goudey baseball and 1933 Indian Gum sets. In the next piece, we learn more about the set that many collectors describe as the premier pirate issue of the 20th century.
