Prior to World War II, few baseball card companies utilized actual photographs to depict the players. The 1939 Play Ball set broke the mold creating a set that featured (161) subjects, all with real photos. Children and collectors alike could easily recognize their favorite players and teams. This near set of (136) Play Ball cards includes many great names and an abundance of high numbers. The included stars, Hall of Famers and high numbers are in better than average condition with #6 Leo Durocher (EX-MT), 7 Bobby Doerr (EX), 30 Bill Dickey (EX), 39 Rick Ferrell (VG-EX), 48 Lefty Gomez (VG-EX), 55 Arky Vaughn (EX), 56 Hank Greenberg (VG-EX), 82 Chuck Klein (VG), 89 Lloyd Waner (GD-VG), 112 Paul Waner (VG-EX), and 143 Earl Averill (GD-VG), the high number grades GD-VG to EX with eight of the low series cards being the “sample” versions with advertising backs.
