Default 1937 Cleveland Press Indians Album

Not a card, but a newspaper cutout intended to be collected. 1937 Cleveland Press Indians Album. One of the first Feller “cards” for those with a liberal definition of a card (like me!)

This is the hardest of the Type 5 Tigers I think-- the left photo is the Canadian washed-out "matte finish" ; the "creamy" type 4 on the right has a slightly thicker "C" and "G" in the "Charles Gehringer"..... coffee helps.

Great cards/photos - and relatively easy to spot the difference when next to each other.

I hope this ended up with a board member. One of my biggest regrets was selling this one. Great eye appeal for a "5"

My vote is for the R314 above, for two reasons: (1) it is to me by far the best looking of the contestants; and (2) I have owned one in nice shape for over 25 years. It is interesting to think that the image was undoubtedly taken in 1936, when he was just 17, and after the season was over, went home to finish high school! He would have won somewhere around 350 games but for his heroic voluntary service in WWII. Very, very underrated player!

Best always,

Larry

The '37 OPC is definitely his most valuable rookie card.

Never liked how some R314 Feller cards say 1936 on the flip!
Here is the back of the '37 OPC:

There is also apparently a 1936 Boston American Stamps newspaper cut-out, but I have yet to see one.

I would prefer the OPC, but I’ve settled for a ‘37 Creamy since the cost of the OPC is so prohibitive.
