Description

Depicting some of the early legends of the game, presented is a 1950 Callahan group of (72) with duplicates and box, along with a 1961 Golden Press complete set which is intact in its original book. The Callahan edition is unnumbered and features Cobb (EX), Gehrig (VG-EX), Ruth (EX-MT o/c) and Wagner (EX). The picturesque box reveals wear on all folds and minor tearing. Also present is an original 1961 Golden Press book which contains the complete (33) card series. Exhibiting moderate wear on the front and back covers, the book has a crease on the upper right corner of the four inner pages which does not effect the cards. An eclectic memorial honoring bygone greats of the game.
