Highlights include #4 Ruth (PR, reverse writing), #15 Alexander (EX), #19 Cuyler (VG), #20 Ruth (GD), #21 Foxx (EX), #35 Gehrig (VG), #39 Grove (VG); Additional Color Variations: (27 cards, average VG to EX) with #23 Terry (EX-MT), #29 Hafey (EX-MT), #30 Ott (VG), #35 Gehrig (GD), #37 Cochrane (EX), #39 Grove (VG) and #54 Cochrane (EX). Assigned grades are based on how the card presents and not the varying dimensions inherent with strip card issues. More on our website.
