    1916 New York World "Leaders in Baseball" Series 2 Blotter Cards SGC-Graded Pair (2). As the only known graded examples from this elusive set, we are fairly safe in claiming these cards are very rare with no accusation of over hyping them. Offered is a pair of blotter cards produced by the "New York World" newspaper. The cards advertise themselves as "Leaders in Baseball - Series II" along with the five names that comprise a set. The large sized cards measure 9" x 4" with ample room for advertising, circulation and lines of copy stats of the New York World as compared to other New York papers and a sizeable portrait of the featured player. Offered is HoFer Frank "Home Run" Baker (SGC 30 Good 2) and Jake Daubert (SGC 30 Good 2). Both present very nicely, far nicer than the technical grades. These are the only examples we have been able to confirm.
