1941 Play Ball Collection Including Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams (29)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,292.50

Collection of twenty-nine different 1941 Play Ball bubble-gum cards issued by Gum, Inc., highlighted by Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio. Condition ranges in grade from Good (includes a few slightly lesser) to Vg-Ex condition, averaging Vg overall. The collection consists of the following: #1 Miller (Vg), 3, 12, 14 Ted Williams (HOF, Vg), 16, 25, 27, 29, 30, 32, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39 Henrich (Fr), 41, 43, 45, 46, 47, 53, 57, 61 V. DiMaggio (Vg-Ex), 63 D. DiMaggio (Gd-Vg), 65, 68, 70 Bill Dickey (HOF, Vg-Ex, no creases), 71 DiMaggio (Pr-Fr; the bottom border has been partially cut away, but the card is otherwise very presentable, bright and crisp, with a couple of print lines and no creases), and 72 Lefty Gomez (HOF, Vg-Ex, no creases). This is a very attractive low-grade collection representing just a little more than 40% of the set, including the two keys cards (Williams and DiMaggio), which could serve as an excellent start toward assembling the set, or serve as an impressive representation of the issue. Total 29 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,292.50
