1919-21 W514 Baseball Cards

Joe Gharrity 1919-21 (W514) #109Like a lot baseball cards of the strip variety, the 1919-21 W514 cards also have blank backs. Having a closer look at these cards reveals their simplicity and frailty. These cards are not of typical thickness of standard cards. In fact, these cards are so thin that they are something of a challenge to put into semi-rigid holders. My advice here would be to use toploaders when storing these cards. The colors here are bright and vibrant for their age. The pop of the yellow and red have withstood the test of time quite beautifully. This is a quality set with a list of mega-legends that includes Cobb, Ruth and “Shoeless”. I would anticipate high scarcity at shows and shops but keep your eyes out online if you’re in the market for examples from this exquisite set.
