Description



An obscure oddball series issued in sixteen 9x12 sheets, the encompassing 1955 All-American Sports Club 500-card, multi-sport set features both male and female athletes from the sports of baseball, basketball, boxing, football, golf, and tennis. A look at the checklist (included) reveals the baseball player portion of this black and white photo series numbers 218. Here we have (5) complete sheets and (2) partial sheets, that form a baseball player near-run of (217/218). With deference to small tape stains on the side borders of each, these attractive sheets show average VG to VG-EX details.

 

Highlights are (26) Hall of Famers, with: "Pee Wee" Reese (2) different: #259, #440; #268 Enos Slaughter, #280 Ted Williams, #284 Al Kaline, #287 Stan Musial, #298 Hoyt Wilhelm, #303 "Red" Schoendienst, #304 "Duke" Snider, #308 Minnie Minoso, #324 Monte Irvin, #348 Willie Mays, #363 Phil Rizzuto, #367 "Babe" Ruth, #369 Rich Ashburn, #379 Bob Feller, #383 Early Wynn, #387 "Yogi" Berra, #388 Nellie Fox, #394 Ralph Kiner, #418 Roy Campanella, #420 Robin Roberts, #432 Larry Doby, #437 Jackie Robinson, #441 Eddie Mathews, and #443 Warren Spahn. Each of the five complete sheets features 32 players. One of the two partial sheets is absent #442 Mickey Mantle, and the other partial sheet is absent 6 photos from the bottom tier, which are all golfers.
