Description

Extensive 1920-1931 baseball strip collection of (387) cards featuring a whopping gallery of (134) Hall of Famers. The majority of these W series cards were crudely cut from various strips and are found in varying dimensions. Despite a combination of wear including acute creasing, reverse paper loss/residue or writing, the sheer amount of Cooperstown firepower overwhelms any technical flaws. Highlights include 1921 W516-2-2: Ruth (EX); 1921 W551 near: (9/10, average VG-EX, 10 dupes) with Cobb (PR), W. Johnson (VG), (3) Ruth (two GD, one PR, reverse writing); 1923 W572 starter: (60/121, average FR to GD, 97 dupes, 12% reverse paper loss/writing) with Hornsby (VG); 1926-27 W512 set: (10/10, average GD, 26 dupes) with #3 Cobb (GD), (2) #6 Ruth (VG, GD), (4) #9 Hornsby (average VG); 1927 W560: Cochrane/Pennock/Walberg (EX-MT) and L.
