All of the matchbook covers have some value regardless of condition. But complete books with the matches unused generally bring a premium. Because these were matchbook covers, they are often heavily worn with creasing, tears, and other flaws.
Fronts of the matchbooks feature a black and white image of a player inside of a square along with his name. The backs include a biography and insides of the books (where the matches were stored) are blank.
