    Very Rare 1939 Father & Son Shoes Baseball Cards Group (4). One of the rarest regional issues, so rare most have probably never seen even a single example are the Father & Son Shoes cards featuring the Philadelphia Phillies and Athletics. The current checklist stands at 17 different players and who knows how many more may be found, if any at all. The Back &White cards are made of a thin card stock and are approx. 3" x 4" in size. This presentation includes four Phillies players including Morrie Arnovich, Spud Davis, Merrill May and Claude Passeau. One card, Passeau, has a short crease, the other three have very mild soiling and are apparent EX/MT cards. Each back has four areas of glue residue and with some paper stuck to the card reducing technical assessment but not visual enjoyment. For the type card collector, this is a very rare chance to add an example to your collection and have some enticing trade bait to entice others. Based on our research, this is only the third time in the last 14 years a quantity other than just one example has been made available at auction.
