Complete set of these popular cards, which were issued one card per bag of Dan-Dee potato chips. Dan-Dees are usually found with serious condition problems relating to this method of issue, including creases and potato-chip grease stains. The wax coating on the surface of these cards was intended to protect them from grease staining. Since these cards were issued primarily in the Pittsburgh and Cleveland areas, it is not surprising the players featured are mostly Pirates and Indians, although the three New York area teams are also represented. Condition is sixteen cards range from Vg to Ex and thirteen cards grade lesser (including one with a slight trim). Two cards are graded by PSA. Keys: Doby (Gd), Feller (erased writing on front, otherwise Vg-Ex), Garcia (EX 5), Hodges (erasure mark on top border, otherwise Vg-Ex), Irvin (Gd), Lemon (Ex+), Lopez (Fr), Mantle (VG 3), Rizzuto (Vg), Schoendienst (Gd), Snider (Vg), and Wynn (Vg-Ex+). This is a scarce complete set of one of the classics of 1950s regional food issues. Total: 29 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
