Description

Exceedingly scarce 1948-1950 Safe-T Cards near set of (65/68) cards. Previously numbered at 67 cards, the recent confirmation of a Bill McGowan Umpire card has conclusively led to an amendment of the checklist. This multi-sport set features numerous Washington D.C. sporting figures including professional and collegiate baseball, football and basketball players, coaches and owners along with other regional and national stars. The backs advertise the Jim Gibbons Cartoon-A-Quiz program in a variety of colors. The arrangement generally presents (EX-MT) with many better and a handful lesser. Keys include Baseball: Ca. Griffith (EX-MT), Cl. Griffith (EX-MT), Harris (EX-MT), Lemon (GD), McGowan (EX, previously unknown to exist), Newcombe (EX-MT), Rice (EX-MT), Wynn (EX-MT); Football: Baugh (NM, Close-Up, darkened background), Baugh (EX, portrait), Edwards (NM), Gilmer (EX-MT, “No Helmet”), Gilmer (EX-MT, with Helmet), Waterfield (NM) and Basketball: Auerbach (EX-MT). Missing only Ball, DeGroot and Guepe for completion.
