1912 Baseball and Celebrity Stamps Overview
This unclassified stamp/transfer set is largely unknown by collectors. It was certainly unknown to Jefferson Burdick, who did not categorize it in his American Card Catalog.
Of most interest, the set includes several baseball players. The stamps feature a color picture inside of a decorative border with the player’s name at the bottom. These borders vary from subject to subject and are in numerous different styles and colors. A white border surrounds the entire stamp.
While baseball players are most interesting to sports collectors, non-sports personalities are also in the set, such as presidents, Indians, and military personnel.
