Offered is a slightly off-to-mid grade 1940 Play Ball Baseball complete set. As one of the largest pre-war series, the 1940 Play Ball set contains some of the games biggest and brightest stars. This set is loaded with dozens of Hall of Famers, with key cards and grades being #1 Joe DiMaggio (GD-VG), #6 Lefty Gomez (VG-EX), #7 Bill Dickey (VG-EX), #10 Red Ruffing (VG-EX), #27 Ted Williams (GD), #40 Hank Greenberg (VG-EX), #41 Charlie Gehringer (VG-EX), #87 Carl Hubbell (VG-EX), #88 Mel Ott (VG-EX), #102 Chuck Klein (VG), #104 Paul Waner (VG), #105 Lloyd Waner (VG-EX), #119 Pete Alexander (VG), #120 Walter Johnson (VG-EX), #133 Jimmie Foxx (VG-EX), #168 Honus Wagner (VG), #170 Tris Speaker (VG-EX), #173 Larry Lajoie (VG-EX), #175 Christy Mathewson (VG-EX), #225 Joe Jackson (VG-EX), #234 Frank Chance (EX) and #240 Bill Atwood (VG). The general feeling when viewing this collection is that nearly all the cards are solid VG to VG-EX with only and handful lesser and a few better. This tremendous set deserves consideration and a spotlight in all collections, as so many of the past Hall of Famers are coupled with the era’s best players in a fantastic sepia toned set.
