Baseball Bats Candy Overview

BBB 15 CollinsSimilar to the All Star Base-Ball and Darby Chocolates issues, the Baseball Bats cards were cutouts from a box of candy (Baseball Bats). These are believed to have been printed in either 1911 or 1912 and collectors refer to both years.

The cards have either orange or white borders with a red or gray background. Fronts include a color image of a player and his name and team printed at the bottom while the backs are completely blank.

A third type of the cards also exists, as evidenced by this thread. These cards are black and white with no color.

While there are a few different types of these cards, they shouldn’t be confused with the Orange Borders set. Those also have orange borders but have player names printed in larger font and do not list the team names.
