    Description

    1950 Philadelphia Phillies Bulletin Pin Ups Set (26). Two versions of this rare set honoring the National League Champion "Whiz Kids" were issued in late September of that year, the first a newsprint version issued one a day within Philadelphia's The Evening Bulletin, and the second a premium version printed on heavy paper with a semi-gloss finish and blank back. This second, more desirable version was available for a nickel at the newspaper's office or for a dime by mail, and the original mailing envelope that joins this set assures an original ten cent price tag. Some foxing is apparent upon the Dick Whitman and Eddie Sawyer "cards," but otherwise a small degree of border toning is all that prohibits a NRMT rating. A complete and essentially unhandled set, presented for the first time to the collecting hobby.
