W521 Strip Card Overview

The 1921 W521 strip card set includes a total of 20 cards. The cards are basic strip cards with colored player images and names on the front with blank backs.

Most interesting is that the set is practically the same as the W519-1 issue. It features the same exact players and same exact card numbers. The only difference is that the pictures are reversed. For that reason, it is often difficult for collectors to distinguish between the two series. These cards are rarer than the W519s, though, and command a little more money.

The other primary difference, aside from the fact that the pictures are backwards, is that only one issue makes up the W521 set. W519 included three similar, but slightly different subsets.
