Collection of five different cards (out of the nine cards in the set) from the 1953 Stahl-Meyer Franks set. Stahl-Meyers have long been recognized as one of the most desirable of all 1950s food issues. Stahl-Meyers were regionally issued in the New York area, one card per package, with Stahl-Meyer Franks. The set features a selection of stars from all three New York teams. This collection consists of the following: Hodges (hand cut proof or printer’s scrap, otherwise Vg), Irvin (HOF, Fr), Lockman (Fr), Rizzuto (HOF, trimmed, otherwise Fr), and Snider (HOF, Gd). Due to their method of issue, cards from this series are commonly found in rough condition. Despite the modest assigned grades, this is a very attractive collection of Stahl-Meyer Franks cards which provides a significant foundation for the assembly of a complete set of this extremely popular 1950s food issue. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
