    Description

    1953 Red Man Baseball Near Set (45/52). Offered is a very attractive 45-card near set of 1953 Red Man tobacco baseball cards. This is a very fresh presentation abundant with blazing colors, glossy surfaces and sharp corners. Many cards appear fresh from the pack. Every card has retained the bottom tab portion. Visually, the group displays at the NM or better range. A close inspection shows most have a very, very slightly impression at a corner or two from being placed in an album. This is barely noticeable on most, a few it is more visible. Highlights include: #'s 1A Stengel (VG/EX), 5A Fox (NM), 10A Rizzuto (SGC 84 NM 7), 12A (SGC 88 NM/MT 8), 14A Wynn (SGC 88 MM/MT 8), 15A (SGC 84 NM 7), 17A Lemon (EX/MT), 3N Ashburn (EX/MT), 10N Reese (EX), 14N Snider (EX/MT), 20N (SGC 88 NM/MT 8), 21N Wilhelm (EX/MT), 22N (SGC 84 NM 7) and 26N Musial (EX/MT). Missing #'s 3A, 4A, 5N, 11N, 15N 19N, 25N for completion. Grades 46% NM to NM/MT, 54% EX to EX/MT (mainly due to noted corner impression issue) with a couple lesser.
