Collection of ten cards from three classic 1940s sets, each graded and encapsulated by PSA (submitted by REA). These cards are from an old-time collection and have been stored away for years before being consigned to this auction. 1) 1940 R335 Play Ball (1 card): #168 Wagner (VG 3). 2) 1941 R330 Double Play (7 cards): #23/24 Reese/Higbe (VG 3), two 57/58 Williams/Tabor (both VG 3), 59/60 Cronin/Foxx (VG-EX 4), 63/64 DiMaggio/Keller (GOOD 2), and two 81/82 Williams/Cronin (both VG-EX 4). 3) 1941 R336 Play Ball (2 cards): #8 Ott (GOOD 2) and 13 Foxx (VG 3).
