Default 1953-55 Brown & Bigelow Playing Cards

I bought these cards years ago and I've always liked them. Does anyone here collect sample cards from baseball themed playing card decks? If so, I'd like to see them. Thanks.

I have the Brown and Bigelow Lou Gehrig you show and while it is considered to be of little value I think it is one of the most attractive cards ever produced. I love the image. I don't have the whole deck just a single card.

I liked these Sports Deck (and Pepsi) cards. They were from the mid 70s.

Always thought these were nice-looking, affordable cards.

I have a Brown & Bigelow of Babe Ruth. It doesn't have any advertising on it, though. Are these harder or easier to find than those with a company name/address/phone number?

Agreed they are very nice for the price. Probably my best ever antique shop purchase was a full deck of the Gehrig cards in box for $5.
