Posted By: <b>Dennis W.</b><p>I'm helping a friend with this one. I don't have the card in my possesion so I can't really answer any specific questions. Would like to know if this is a variation of the W573 strip card series. Notice the difference in the borders at the bottom of the card. The card has a blank back. The version of the Leverette card below is the only variation I've seen. All help is appreciated.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.mlbvintage.com/pics/uploads/ruth_w573.jpg"><br /><br />I borrowed this image from OldCardboard for comparision.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.mlbvintage.com/pics/uploads/w573.jpg"><br /><br />I wanted to also thank Trae for his free image hosting at MLBVintage - Thanks Trae!
