Description

Presented are two 1953-54 Briggs Meats Washington Senators cards in good condition. The Briggs Meats Company issued this 40-card set on the wax cardboard packaging of their products with the caption, “Kids! Cut Out and Save these Cards. Collect Them! Save Them!” Unfortunately, few saved them and these very rare cards have become one of the most sought after if not the most popular regional issue in the hobby. This duo of scarce Washington Senators – Mickey Vernon and Eddie Yost – are in very good condition with the wax residue and luster still apparent on these beauties. Each has been trimmed from the original packages to 2-1/4” x 3-3/8”, the standard and common size. Each reverse displays minimal staining, which is also a common occurrence for this issue. Now is your chance to save and collect them again, don’t miss out.
