One of the most difficult premium sets to acquire; with less than 10 complete sets known in the hobby. The premiums were available by exchange of 20 National Chicle "Football Stars" wrappers from the retailer of the cards. While much is left to be learned regarding the production and distribution of the premiums; it becomes painfully obvious to today's collectors that equal numbers each premium are not available in the hobby. While all the premiums are relatively rare, there exists many levels of scarcity within the group; with the existence of a couple of the premiums questioned as recently as ten years ago by advanced collectors.

This complete set, to the best of our knowledge, is one of only a few complete sets (17/17) ever offered via auction. The premiums from this set present relatively well and better than their technical grades. The blank reverses of a few of the examples display some light toning and a few areas of discoloration but are otherwise problem free.  A complete breakdown of the group is listed below:

Bach (VG with some spotting on the reverse), Casey (FR-GD with upper right corner chipping), Christensen (VG+), Grange (VG-EX), Kostka (VG+), Maniaci; Fordham vs. St. Mary's (VG with "1934 written in caption), Newman (VG-EX), Switzer; Cornell vs. Columbia (VG with stain reverse), Bears Team (VG+), Giants Team (VG), Notre Dame vs. Army (VG-EX), Pitt vs. Navy (VG+), Pirates (Steelers) Team (FR with five small tack holes), Touchdown Morton of Yale (FR-GD), Dixie Howell; Alabama vs. Stanford (VG-EX), Cotton Goes Places with Gerald Ford (FR-GD with upper left corner chipping), Gretaest Tackle ever Photographed; Redskins vs. Lions (VG).
