1921-30 Major League Ball Die-Cuts Overview
The 1921-30 Major League Ball Die-Cuts set is an issue that spanned over many years throughout the 1920s.
The die-cut cards featured the names of specific players but the cartoon renderings were used over and over for various players over the years. Because of that, they’re part generic and part player-specific. And because images were reused over and over, it is practically impossible to determine all of the years of all of the cards in the set.
In addition to basic information about players, the set also included some unique things such as the player’s batting side and their order in the batting order.
The cards featured color images using relatively dull colors. Each die-cut had a square printed at the bottom with the player’s name, position, and team. While they all had the same general look, it’s worth pointing out that some of the fonts used for the player’s information at the bottom varied a little.
Here is an early trade card of children actually playing the game. The card served as an advertisement to promote it.
