Presented is one of the great anomalies of the prewar baseball card era, a 12-card paper sheet from the 1941 Play Ball Baseball issue, the last mainstream card set produced in the United States before the onset of our involvement in World War II. The sheet, printed on a thin paper stock rather than the traditional card stock, are otherwise identical to the regular-issue Play Ball cards, representing card Nos. 13-24 printed in numerical order on a 12-card sheet. The 10-by-9 ½-inch sheets are in wonderful condition, ostensibly presenting even better than the technical grade, with bold, vivid colors yielding an epic portrayal of the unique art deco backgrounds that adorn each card. Sheet No. 1 (Nos. 1-12), included in another sale, is broadly VG-Ex and is highlighted by Hall of Famers Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell and Arky Vaughan, plus Miller, West, Walters, Derringer, McCormick, Danning, May, Garms and Brown. Sheet No. 2 (Nos. 13-24), which is for sale here, presents as Ex-Mt, jostled only by a small “45” written in pencil on the back of the Hal Trosky and the tiniest of nicks on the edge of the Ruffing card. The lineup is incredible with a half dozen Hall of Famers, including Ted Williams, Jimmie Foxx, Joe Cronin, Hank Greenberg, Charlie Gehringer and Ruffing, plus Trosky, Weatherly, Keller, Johnson, McQuinn and Leonard.
