Beautiful collection of popular lithographed ballplayers that while not designed to depict any actual ballplayers depicts generic players in the uniforms of actual teams. Wonderfully detailed images all have strong appearances with the New York and Pittsburg players in particularly high grade. Despite these types of die-cuts being traditionally pasted into scrapbooks and photo albums these are particularly difficult to find in high grade due to the number of thin parts (arms tabs legs etc.) that are subject to tearing and excessive wear. Each of these die cuts appears very strong an outstanding-looking group of die cuts with exceptional eye appeal 60% of a complete set.
