Default w-unc King of Clubs John McGraw

I have had the following a Red w-unc King of Clubs John McGraw for a few years now.



Recently someone reached out to me with a scan of a card they have had for quite some time and asked if I had anymore info. Theirs is tan (basically cardboard color with black print on it). I have linked it to this post. I really don't have any more info on this set. I know that I own the red tinted one, but other than that I know nothing about this set.

Does anyone have any more info on this set?

He reached out to me too. At first I thought it was a W560 but then looked again and it's not, of course. Also, based on the W560 id I didn't like the cardstock. But with it being the other issue I think it's fine. My guess is it is just another color.

Without seeing a scan with the original question he posed I suggested he look at the w560 set as well. Once he proved the scan, as you noticed as well, it obviously wasn't w560.

There's a thread where Adam catalogues this entire playing card set, but I could not find it. I found a similar thread here: Link that shows some of the other cards in this set. I have four of the Ruth's with slight color variations.

Mixed subject set that (as far as baseball goes includes Babe Ruth (AD), Bob Meusel 6C), Tris Speaker (9S), and John McGraw (KC).)

Set also includes boxers and actors as far as we know (pictures are some that I have picked up over the years)...





Keep in mind there is another set that appears to be all acors that have oval pictures in the middle (not square) that appear to be from a completely different set.

The cards were issued in vertical strips of ten. Sometimes you find a card with a long top or bottom as a result of being the end card. It is a very hard set to assemble.

That Ruth run is sick...

Here is the speaker:



here is one of the long cards:



ETA: couldn't any of these kids use scissors?

Sometimes you just have to call a spade club a spade club
