OK, quite a number of mis-printed 1949 LEAF cards can be found....but, can anyone on this forum top this mis-print ?

There are some pretty nice looking Babe Ruth cards on display in this thread. Here are my two Ruth cards from my two sets.

The fine looking Ruth on the left...I paid only a penny for in the Spring of 1949. It is not unusual to find the Babe Ruth cards
from this set in pretty nice condition, because a lot of us kids did not "flip" them, nor stick them in our bicycle spokes (as we
did with many of the other LEAF cards in our youth).

Here are the wrappers of the two competing Gum Co. in 1949. The Bowman wax packs were available for a Penny and a Nickel.
I remember only Penny wax packs of LEAF in my neighborhood.

Ted, thanks for all the images. Sometimes I think the only way to appreciate the beauty of a set is to see many of the cards side by side. Especially a set with so many colors.

Side note, the inclusion of Ruth has puzzled me....as do the high prices for that card since it was not issued during his playing days. It makes that set even harder to put together for a collector on a budget!

Hi
In the Spring of 1949, many of us kids were excited to open up a LEAF pack to find a Babe Ruth card. It was still very fresh in our minds when Babe Ruth passed away in August 1948.
LEAF Gum Co. sold a lot of cards by including Ruth in this set.

Furthermore, they sold a lot cards in 1949 by "skip-numbering" these cards. This was a "nasty" little marketing trick that kept us kids spending a ton of pennies buying these cards, in
the quest of filling in our sets with the missing numbers. Many of which did not exist.
