R337 Eclipse Import Overview

R337 420 Lazzeri.jpg

The 1933 R337 Eclipse Import set includes only 24 cards in the entire set. Fronts include a color cartoon sketch and the player’s name and team. The backs had a short biography of the player on the card as well as a card number.

Cards are numbered 401-424. Curiously, three cards are not numbered. Three card numbers are also not known with a player so the unnumbered players are likely meant to be those cards.

Drawings were somewhat low quality compared to other issues and they even sort of resembled strip cards. Still, this remains a popular issue because of its rarity.

The cards are hand cut as they were initially included in strips of eight.
