W520 Strip Overview

The 1920 W520 strip card set includes 20 cards. Fronts include colored images as well as a card number and the player’s name. Backs of the cards are completely blank. Some of the cards have the player’s full name but others have only last names.

Even though the set is small, it has a few interesting characteristics. Several spelling errors exist and Hall of Famer Zack Wheat has two cards as does Mike Gonzales.

One of Wheat’s two issues shows him looking like he is about to throw a pitch despite the fact that he was an outfielder. Interestingly enough, it could even be a bit of an error. The pose is eerily similar to that of Harry Coveleski’s card (Harry was a pitcher).

Here are pictures of all of the cards in the set.
