Default The voice of the prairie states : WCCO





...and who can ever forget the dulcet tones of Si Seymour , Sr.-......look in his left hand.....how's that for marketing and product placement ?
....Jerry Harrington did the same for Wheaties , who sponsored the Millers' and Saints' games ......
....I thought these were scarce and rare but it turns out that Leon has three of each...

...Tim , there's a gorgeous Homer Peel currently listed on Ebay ...several Worch offerings in fact , both current and '' completed ''...can you use those in your research , or is this forum more Tim-friendly ?

Default Hall of Fame sluggers in the Worch Major Leagues





The PSA Population Report for the Worch cards is spread out over both their Major and Minor League sections ; they stick to ''1933'' no matter what the actual year of issue is , no matter what evidence you produce ; in their world as far as they're concerned the name of the set is ''1933 Worch''.

SGC attempts to be more precise and accurate .

Default ''Gill'' , just ''Gill''




...so it seems there is a different variation of Ernie Smith also out there somewhere , if you can trust the source used by the grader. I've not seen it ; we can hope some one can post a scan .

Default First names added to the label sometimes




....accuracy may be in question , though. I think the flip should just reflect what is on the card ; I am very very content and pleased with the ''Gill'' card.

Default Worch photo variations- B &W and also sepia ?





....evidently two types exist for the same player in some cases....in this example , one is the common glossy black and white , while the other has a sepia tone to it ? ; also I noticed that when you wobble the sepia-toned photo/card into a strong light there is a noticeable phosphorescent presence on the dark/black color only.....there are guys on this forum that know a lot about that stuff ;
.....and although the exact same photo was used , the ''cropping'' is different by a quarter inch ( look at where his elbow is in relation to the edge of the shot , and also note the amount of heel visible....)
...Tim , you are going to have sooooo much fun...

Has anyone ever seen Estil Crabtree from this set? He was my assistants uncle, and Worch is the only card of his that I haven't even seen, let alone been able to obtain.
