I was just going through some stuff and came upon this card. It's a 1931 Metropolitan Studios card. This series is usually very cheap ($20-$30 a card) and has some great poses. How can you not love this pose? (note his left sleeve, can you imagine that in today's billion dollar industry?) Show some neat, albeit common cards, if you would like to.....

I love these cards, they're gorgeous. I have a Frankie Frisch somewhere, and I can definitely tell you it wasn't cheap. :)

Photos of prewar players in uniform, with all their rips and stains, are some of my favorite things about the hobby. You're dead on, Leon - seeing a big old hole in the sleeve like that is awesome.

Love the set too, almost done with it. Need a Mancuso come to think of it. :)
