This obscure issue of high-quality card premiums was undocumented before surfacing at auction in 2009. Fleer's "Whiz-Bang" set is known to contain 3 baseball HOFers and 13 Hollywood figures—9 of which are presented here in the largest intact group known other than the set itself. Best of all, the 3"-diameter discs showcase bright, beautiful NM condition. Includes: Gary Cooper, Jack Oakie, Ted Wells, Ken Maynard, Wallace McDonald, Buck Jones, Chief Thunderbird, Warner Baxter and George O'Brien. According to Lew Lipset, "Thunderbird, Baxter and O'Brien are each 1 of 2 known. The other examples of those 3 are currently part of a set and I suspect that they will never see the light of day."
