Since a certain board member won't sell me his Williams, this is my only one so far.

Default Now you're talking!

This set, by far, has been the most interesting and enjoyable for me to collect.

I can totally understand Ted's reasoning as it's part of his childhood and I respect that.
In many cases it is an acquired taste. When I first got back into collecting ('98-'00), these didn't do much for me. However, over time I came to appreciate the appeal and relative beauty of these cards. Many are off register, so finding an example that's in good shape and registered can be tough, but they look so much better when everything lines up.

You also have minor and major color variations throughout the set, adding another nuance to the eye appeal factor. To me, they perfectly represent the time period, and the printing process resembles an Andy Warhol silkscreen to me.

Default 1948 Leaf

Always loved these cards. Would love to pick up the other big three (Ruth / Robinson / Paige).

Default My one and only

It has some paper loss on the back, but nothing I can't live with.

Default 1949 Leaf BB cards....Cleveland HOFers

Of the twenty HOFers in the 1949 LEAF set, the Indians lead with these five HOFers......


Spring series cards

"MVP in 1948" **
.



Summer series cards (short-prints)

....



** Note.... Trivia: What is unique regarding Lou Boudreau's MVP award ?

Furthermore, I bring Boudreau's 1948 MVP award to your attention, which is one of several factors that prove this LEAF set was issued ONLY in 1949. The graded card
flips (PSA, SGC, etc.) are absolutely incorrect with their "1948" date.

Boudreau's MVP award was announced in late December 1948. However, if you need more proof of the 1949 issue date, I refer you to my 8-page article published in
Old Cardboard titled "1949 R401 Leaf Gum Company: Most Challenging of all "R" sets" ? ...... Issue #9, Fall 2006.
