    1906 WG3 Fan Craze National League Playing Cards Complete Set (54) - #2 on the SGC Set Registry! Set GPA: 92.2. Rank: #2 on the SGC Set Registry! 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 in 1906. The set features some of the finest portraits found on any card production, the work of noted photographer Charles Conlon. The player roster includes stars from the turn-of-the-century in the swan song of their careers plus many just beginning to establish themselves, over a dozen finding their names added to the scroll of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Complete at 54 player cards (plus a header card) there are no fewer than 13 HoFers including Honus Wagner, Roger Bresnahan, Joe Kelley, Vic Willis, Mordecai Brown, John McGraw and a young Miller Huggins. In addition to an extremely high grade set we offer an original game that includes original box, gameboard with nails in their original envelope, and directions for play, all in generally excellent condition. The recipient of this game didn't seem to be too fond of baseball on a table top. Thankfully 98% grades NM-MT to MINT, with 20 cards (36%) grading 96 Mint 9. Includes: Graded - SGC 96 MINT 9: 20 cards, w/Beckley, Bresnahan, Chance, Clarke, Dahlen, Donlin, Duffy, Hanlon, Howard, Kling, Lundgren, Maloney, McGann, McGinnity, Pittinger, Pulliam, Seymour, Sheckard, Thomas and Wicker; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 18 cards, w/Beaumont, Bergen, Brown, Corcoran, Dooin, Doolin, Huggins, Kelley, McGraw, McIntire, O'Neill, Phillippe, Ritchey, Reulbach, Taylor, Weimer, Willis and Young; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 16 cards, w/Ames, Brown, Casey, Dunleavy, Ewing, Fraser, Leach, Lumley, Overall, Pfeffer, Taylor, Tenny, Theilman, Wagner, Wiltse and Header; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, Nichols.
