    1913 WG6 Tom Barker Complete Set (52) With Fenway Box & Stamped F. Baker. It's a mystery why the "WG" or greeting card designation was applied to this set as they are actually a deck of cards designed to play a specific game. The WG6 Tom Barker variety is easily identified by the full figure batter boldly printed on the back of each card. This style is noticeably more scarce than the "National Game" variety and were sold in the same style box. What makes this set interesting is the original box (presents PR, top panel loose) displays the "Fenway Breweries stick over one panel and the Frank baker card has the advertising stamp. This set is always popular regardless of condition due to the lengthy selection of Hall of Famers on the subject roster. Ten cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 84 NM 7: 3 cards, Mack, Mathewson and Speaker; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, Baker/Fenway Stamp; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, W. Johnson; SGC 60 EX 5: 3 cards, Cobb, Lajoie and Young; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards, Jackson and Wagner. Ungraded - Alexander (VG), Bender (VG), Bresnahan (VG), Chance (VG), Clarke (EX), Crawford (EX), Evers (VG/EX), Griffith (VG), Huggins (VG/EX), Jennings (VG), Marquard (VG/EX), McGraw (VG), Tinker (VG), Walsh (VG/EX), Wheat (VG), Wood (VG) and Base Runner Sliding-Cobb (VG). Grades 25% EX to EX/MT with three NM, 75% VG to VG/EX.
