Description:
1904 Fan Craze American League Baseball Complete Set (51) Plus Cover Card. Certainly no one realized what a significant addition to the hobby the Fan Craze Company out of Cincinnati, OH would become when they hit the market. The set features some of the finest portraits of noted photographer Charles Conlon and a player roster which included both stars from the turn-of-the-century in the swan song of their careers to many just beginning to establish themselves. The Fan Craze playing card sets feature what many collectors consider the finest portrait poses of turn-of-the-century ballplayers ever produced on baseball cards. This 51-card complete set includes over a dozen names scrolled on the wall of the Baseball Hall of Fame. A total of 15 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded: SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 2 cards, Collins, Lajoie; SGC 84 NM 7: 2 cards, Bender, Plank; SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5: 3 cards, Flick, Waddell, Wallace; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 6 cards, Bay, Chesbro, Crawford, Griffith, Joss, Young; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, Keeler, Mack. Grades 18% NM, 72% EX to EX/MT, 10% VG to VG/EX. SMR value exceeds $3,500.00
