    Description

    1926 and 1927 W512/W513 Anonymous Baseball, Boxers and Actors Collection (60) With Babe Ruth! The "W" class of cards are by far the most obscure and mysterious section covered by the American card Catalog. With little obvious advertising or any confirmed sponsorship their origins and in some cases new releases are slowly being revealed with every discovery of a new collection. They are as admired by their fans as they are detested by others. Regardless of your opinion, they are an important and fascinating addition to the hobby. This auction is starting off with a selection of "W" cards showcasing both sports and non-sports subjects. Includes: Baseball (30) - #'s 1 Bancroft, 2 Alexander/Cubs(2), 2 Alexander/St. Louis, 4 Speaker/Cleveland, 4 Speaker/Ex-Mgr., 5 Wright(11), 6 Ruth (PR), 7 Scott(3), 8 Frisch, 9 Hornsby(3), 10 Vance(5); Actors/Actresses (9) - #'s 21 Mix(2), 22 Lloyd(3), 23, 24 Chaplin(2), 25; Golf (2) - #39 Hagen(3); Boxers (11) - #'s 41 Dempsey/Heavyweight, 42 Villa/Flyweight Champ, 43/Featherweight, 44 Tunney/Light Heavyweight Champ, 44 Tunney/No Number, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50; Baseball (5) - #'s 64, 69, 72, 75, 85; Boxers (2) - #'s 94, 95; Tennis (1) - #100 La Coste.
