1932 PR2 and PR3 Orbit Gum Pins Overview


The PR2 and PR3 Orbit Gum issues are two separate sets but nearly identical.

The two sets utilize the same design. On the front, a color picture of a player is present along with his name and team in a yellow banner at the bottom. The sole difference between the set is the checklist of players featured and numbering. The PR2 set is numbered (but skip-numbered) while the PR3 set is not numbered.

As is the case with other skip-numbered sets, the reason for it isn’t exactly known. More players were likely supposed to be included but the reason for their apparent omission is not clear.

Some of the names in the banner on the pins include both first and last name while others include only the last name. In addition, there are some variations in the PR2 set, as noted in the checklist below.

Finally, the American Card Catalog classifications for these two issues was a little different than what they are today. Jefferson Burdick listed both of these sets as PR3-3 in his popular book. PR2, in the American Card Catalog, was listed as a National Flags issue as well as a Sports issue. PR3 had a variety of baseball issues in different subsets. The Orbit Gum pins were only one such subset.

You can see pictures of all of the PR2 pins here. The PR3 set does not have the same variations and also includes some different players.
