I have picked up a few cards from this set recently and have grown to like them a lot. I know from doing research on them people tend to either love them or hate them, very few in between. Just wondering what some of your thoughts were.

I like the set a lot, I think it has a little bit of everything, the old (Ruth, Wagner), the new (Paige RC), ultra-tough shortprints (Newhouser, etc.) and condition sensitive issues (registration, centering). All in all, one of my favorite sets from the post-war era.

One of my all time favorite sets. It's got easy cards, tough cards, recognized variations (Aberson, Peterson and Hermanski) a myriad of color variations, retired icons, rookie cards, you name it.
If you're starting on this set Ted Z.'s article in Old Cardboard is a must. There isn't a lot that has been written about this set, but his article is very definitive and a great starting point.

There are some really nice cards and some that look just plain lousy. Gotta love the ghosts and misprints, though.

In the Spring of 1949, these were my 1st colorful BB cards that I collected. As a 9 year old, I was
thrilled by them.....Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Jackie Robinson, and many
more ballplayers that I would hear play, while listening to my old Vacuum Tube radio. Here they were
on little pieces of cardboard that cost me a penny to collect. You're darn tootin.....I love these Leaf
cards.....and, I still do.

Thanks for the nice words regarding my article on this 1949 Leaf set in the Old Cardboard Magazine.

Incidently people, this set is NOT a "1948-49 issue"............
all 98 cards (and the additional variations) in this LEAF set were issued in 1949.....period.
The stupid Grading Co. have mis-labelled everyone these cards.
If you read my article, you will find very strong proof of this fact. And, I guarantee you that you will
be convinced.....never more having to say these cards are a "1948" issue.

Ted Z. please excuse my ignorance. After quick read on oldcardboard I learned that the set was really just a 1949 issue. I was initially just going by what you see on the graded holder in the card scanned above, shame on me.

I read this when I was looking for the article Anthony mentioned in his post.

References:
1) Ted Zanidakis, "1949 R401 Leaf Gum Company: Most Challenging of all 'R' Sets?," Old Cardboard Magazine, Issue #9 (Fall 2006, p. 32-39)

Is this available anywhere to read or do I need to get my hands on a copy of Issue #9?

If you haven't gotten a copy, I would suggest contacting Lyman or Brett Hardeman (by clicking onto the Old Cardboard banner)
and purchasing Issue #9. They always have many back copies available.

After reading the 1949 Leaf article, if there are any unanswered questions, feel free to email me.
