Here is an eight card W515-1 strip that was dealt with as intended by a well meaning kid 100 years ago.  Shorn of its two rightmost subjects, it appears brute force and some scissors were at play here. Five hall-of-famers are included (Sisler, Frisch, Baker, Grimes & Heilmann) and despite its flaws, the colors remain bright.  The reverse has some "assisting" taped areas, helping to keep the integrity of the strip intact.
