    1913 WG6 Tom Barker High Grade Near Set (51) With Fenway Breweries Box. Although Burdick assigned the "WG" or greeting card designation to this series they are actually a deck of cards designed as a game. The WG6 Tom Barker edition has a "National Game" twin but these cards are easily identified by the full figure batter boldly printed on the back of each card. This style is also noticeably more scarce. Also included is the original box (presents PR, side panel splits from top of box and creases) which displays the "Fenway Breweries" sticker over the back panel. This set is always popular regardless of condition due to the lengthy selection of Hall of Famers on the subject roster. Missing Baker for completion. A total of 24 cards have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: Graded - SGC 96 MINT 9: 4 cards, Gregg, Mathewson, Rucker and Walsh; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 6 cards, Daubert, Konetchy, Jackson, Jennings, Batter Swinging and Runner Looking Back; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 10 cards, Birmingham, Chase, Cobb, Griffith, Hoblitzel, Marquard, Speaker, Wheat, Wood and Sliding Into Home; SGC 84 NM 7: 2 cards, Lajoie and Wagner; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards, Dooin and Johnson. Ungraded - including Alexander (EX), Chance (VG), Clarke (EX/MT), Crawford (NM), Evers (VG), Huggins (NM), Mack (VG/EX), McGraw (NM), Tinker (VG/EX) and Young (VG). Grades 54% NM to NM/MT, 17% EX to EX/MT, 29% VG to VG/EX.
