Default Issue Question

Posted By: Will Hays

Can anyone help me place this issue? The five non-Orbit discs are metal with a player on each side, #1 and #2 on either side. They have to be from 1933 or 1934 as one player, Johnny Hodapp, is a Red Sox. 1-1/8" diameter. Players on these five ar Earnshaw / Melillo, Frisch / Clark, Pipgrass / Bottomley, Earnshaw / Alexander and Goslin / Hodapp.

Winner gets a free West Coast Memorabilia t-shirt at the National. Don't forget to remind me.

Thanks, Will

Two of the disks together form a "coin". But don't put them together--they are hard to separate.

you can separate them and recombine the players or keep them separately.

as was stated they are PX3 Double Header Discs, you were encouraged to "Add #1 to #2 and make a Double-Header" I believe they were a Gum Inc. issue. I have seen a wrapper for the issue, but they (the wrappers) are EXTREMELY scarce. Those with #2 at bottom are slightly smaller in diameter than those with #1 and fit inside the #1's. Thus I have found #2's are usually rougher as their paint around the outside has been worn putting the disc inside the other.

Here are a few more, they came in a wide array of colors.


Obviously today people would rather have them as singles as opposed to "coins" so you might want to seperate them. This can be difficult, but I have had success using small suction cups on each side and pulling them apart. This will work unless there is any oxidation that has occured.
