Offered here is a unique 1940 Play Ball Baseball lot of 183 different with 43 of the tough-to-find high numbers. Following the success of its initial effort in 1939, Gum Inc. issued this bigger and better set in 1940. Each card features black-and-white pictures enclosed by a frame with the playerís name along the bottom. Note that each card in this lot has three to four pieces of tape/residue on the front, where the original owner taped them into an album, amazingly, keeping nearly all of the backs in terrific shape. We have graded each card with exclusion of the tape. The key cards in this lot are as follows: #6 Lefty Gomez (VG), 7 Bill Dickey (VG-EX), 30 Moe Berg (VG), 40 Hank Greenberg (VG-EX), 87 Carl Hubbell (VG-EX), 102 Chuck Klein (VG-EX), 104 Paul Waner (VG-EX), 124 Earl Combs (VG-EX), 129 Bucky Harris (EX), 134 Joe Cronin (VG-EX), 133 Jimmie Foxx (VG), 141 Casey Stengel (VG), 142 George Kelly (VG-EX), 153 Bill McKechnie (EX), 158 Travis Jackson (VG-EX), 167 Frank Frisch (VG-EX), 171 Harry Heilmann (EX), 174 John Evers (VG-EX), 178 Max Carey (VG), 180 Mickey Cochrane (VG-EX), 224 Pie Traynor (GD), 226 Harry Hooper (EX), 227 Pop Haines (VG-EX), 230 Red Faber (VG-EX), 234 Frank Chance (EX) and 237 Willie Keeler (VG). The balance of the high numbers grade as follows: 43% EX, 47% VG-EX, 8% VG and 2% GD. The balance of the low numbers grade as follows: 21% EX, 65% VG-EX and 14% VG.
