Note: This is 1 of 2 similar sets of Donruss Marvel cards that I have listed (calling this one "set 2").

Background

These are the original Marvel Comics trading cards, produced in 1966, shortly after the characters were created.The set is broken down into six 11-card groups, each showcasing a different hero: Captain America (#1-11), Iron Man (#12-22), Daredevil (#23-33), Spider-Man (#34-44), the Hulk (#45-55) and Thor (#56-66).

The card fronts feature actual scenes/panels lifted directly from the comics, so the artwork is by the Marvel artists of the time. Each card had a word balloon on it that contained either a cornball gag line or space to write in your own caption (guessing the latter led to a large number of ruined cards). The card backs fit together as a puzzle to form a large group picture of all the featured heroes in their classic poses.

Condition

Overall, the cards have been well cared for (i.e., packed away and not handled much for 50+ years).

I grade the cards as listed below and have included my assessment of the centering. A number of the cards have rough cut edges. Sounds like some people care about those and some don't, but I tried to take them into account in the grading, lowering the grades in those cases where the higher grades don't allow for rough edges (based on grading guidelines I have seen). That said, I'm not a professional grader, so be sure to have a close look at the front/back pictures provided.

I've also included what I assessed as a "retail" value for each card based on the grade (I'm throwing in the miscut cards for free to complete the set).The retail values add up to $1,215.
