1926-27 W512

1926-27 W512 Pittsburgh Pirates

One of the many “strip card” sets of the period, the W512 set was initially issued in 1926 and includes 10 baseball players among its 50 cards. The 1-3/8" by 2-1/4" cards feature crude color drawings of the subjects with their names below. A card number appears in the lower left corner. Baseball players lead off the set and are numbered from 1 to 10. Like most strip cards they have blank backs. At least four of the baseball player cards have been found in a second type on which the team name is presented in a typewriter style font on the second line; these changes reflect the player status as of 1927.
