Joe Dimaggio Premium id? 1930s?

Recent pick up and trying to identify where/when it came from? it is 5 x 7 and on heavy card stock. The front is glossy and the back isn't. Bottom scan size is messed up. It's the same card. Thanks in advance...

This Joe D is from a c. 1941 Wheaties premium set that also includes Ted Williams, Bob Feller, Johnny Mize and Pete Reiser as well as golfer Patty Berg, football figures Tuffy Leemans and Bernie Bierman and 4 members of the Wheaties Armstrong/Fairchild etc. family.

Thanks Spec. I have searched for hours and can't find another single copy of any of these. Is there any other info anywhere on them that you know of? thanks so much....

We had a brief discussion of this set on the football side a while back when someone asked whether there were any cards of football HOFer Tuffy Leemans. It was a mail-in offer, so you usually see the whole set rather than single cards (photos).

Spec, I'd love to see others from the set. Do you have any scans you can post? Thanks.

Thanks Bob, That is an interesting discussion and nice premium of Tuffy.

There doesn't seem to be anything in cyberspace about these? That said, I understand there is a lot that isn't known, or isn't out there in cyberspace yet. Or a search simply didn't catch something that IS already there.

The hunt for this esoteric stuff is a lot of the fun. Thanks again for the info.

Tried to post scans of the other 4 baseball players in the set, but kept getting message "Failed to upload". Sorry.
By the way, my understanding is that these were available through the Jack Armstrong radio program sponsored by Wheaties rather than offered on the cereal boxes. The photos of Jack, Betty Fairfield, her brother Billy and uncle Jim prove his connection. There is a perhaps related set of postcard-size photos of Jack, Betty, and the pair with the dog Arrow Champ plus one of Ted Williams (there may be other ballplayers, but I do not have them, nor a copy of the Williams postcard-size, but have seen several for sale over the years).
