Description

Among the most mysterious regional issues, presented is a 1954-1955 Baltimore Orioles Zip Cards group of (20) different. Little is known of this series' origin or modes of distribution. With a composite grade of (NM), many of these cards appear to be cut in a rudimentary manner. Additionally, a variation leaves some of these cards larger (2-3/4" x 3-1/2") than their 2" x 2-1/2" contemporaries. Included are 1954 small version: #2 Oliver, #6 Chackales, #7 Stuart, #8 Brideweser, #9 Garcia and #10 Fridley; 1954 large version black letters: #4 Waitkus, #5 Diering and #13 Durham; 1955 small version: #1 Causey, #4 Gastall, #5 Hale, #9 Nelson, #10 Philley, #13 Shallock and #16 Harris; 1955 large version white letters: #3 Evers, #6 Kennedy, #7 Leppert and #8 Moss (VG, creased). A wise endeavor for the preeminent early Orioles collector.
