W590 Strip Card Overview

pw590sheetW590 Hornsby.jpgThe W590 strip card set includes black and white images with player names, teams, and positions at the bottom. As is the case with most strip cards, the backs are blank.

Numerous variations exists. Some cards state the player’s position and then have ‘former’ added (i.e. ‘former right fielder’) as a variation. In addition, some players that changed franchises have different team variations with their new team.

The issue is part of a multi-sport set that includes other athletes as well as some movie stars. Other sports included are football, boxing, and golf, among others. At least one football player, Walter Koppisch, is included in the set. New cards have been discovered as recently as a few years ago, so the baseball checklist may not yet be complete.
