    1952 Num Num Cleveland Indians Complete Set (20). Distributed with packages of Num Num potato chips, pretzels and other snack foods, this black-and-white set, like the 1950 issue, was also issued in a slightly different format directly by the team. The Num Num cards have a 1" tab at the bottom which could be redeemed when a complete set was collected, for an autographed baseball. The team-issued version of the cards was printed without the tabs. Also like the 1950 Num Nums, Bob Kennedy's card is unaccountably scarce in the 1952 set. The '52 cards measure 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" including the tab, which has the card number on front, along with redemption details. Highlights include #4 Bob Lemon, 5 Bob Feller (light staining), 6 Early Wynn, 16 Bob Kennedy (no tab), 18 Larry Doby, 20 Al Lopez (VG). Balance of the set retains tabs and averages EX/MT in condition.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
