Description

In the spring and summer of 1941, the war that would turn the nation upside down for the next four years was still months away. For a penny, you could get a piece of gum and two baseball cards at the local drug store.

The 1941 Play Ball set is remembered fondly as the last major issue until World War II had been over for nearly three years. When the war started, American business was told to conserve everything—including paper—to fight the Axis powers.

Unlike the company’s 1939 and ’40 issues, the ’41 Play Ball set featured color pictures, with a pastel-type look that brought the players to life. Some of the photos in the set are the same ones used in the black and white 1940 set. A clean and simple design evokes memories of a different era and there are many great portraits of the players of the day. The card backs have an extensive biography of the player pictured on the front.

Presented is a lot of (12) vintage 1941 Play Ball baseball cards. The cards are all in starter set grade condition with some better than others. See photos for condition assessment. The highlight is the Ted Williams #14 was encapsulated and graded by SGC PR 1. Other cards in the lot include:

#1 Ed Miller
#6 Carl Hubbell
#9 Pinky May
#12 Jimmy Brown
#17 Roy Weatherly
#19 Charlie Gehringer (marked on back).
#21 Charlie Keller
#29 Jack Wilson
#33 Happy Milnar
#46 Sid Hudson
#72 Lefty Gomez
