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 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.
