Fortunately, the same UK seller that listed the T206 cards that I posted about last week, also made available a partial set of the 1950 Callahan release. These cards were by B.E.Callahan of Chicago and distributed as a box set at both the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and ball parks nationwide. I was fortunate to pick up 56 cards for just over $16. Not bad when you consider that each card has a book value of at least $2 - $5.
In addition to cards from Grover, Alexander, Lefty Grove, Rogers Hornsby & John McGraw, the partial set included one of my favourite old school ball players; the great Walter Johnson.
Grover Alexander (Cardinals), Walter Johnson (Nationals) & Lefty Grove (Athletics)
Napoleon Lajoie (Naps), John McGraw (Giants) & Rogers Hornsby (Cardinals)
This is the last 'new' set that I am likely to feature on the blog this year. I am going to make a conscious effort to try and complete as many of the unfinished sets I have on the go; before commencing any new chases. Consequently, I am not going to purchase cards form any releases that I do not already own.
Over the coming posts, I will though look to showcase some of the sets in my collection, that I have not shown before. Thanks for reading!
