Of all the sets out there to collect, the Leafs are my favorite. Scanned are 2 of my recent pick-ups.

Default 1949 leaf

Mike

You must have the best 1949 LEAF set in the hobby. Your cards are really amazing.

Take care, good buddy.

Default Variations

To me the uniform detail on some of the Wyrostek and Adams cards seem just as significant as the PSA recognized variations of Aberson, Peterson and Hermanski. Hey Ted thanks for the kind words.

Always been one of my favorite cards because my Great Grandfather looked so much like the Wagner Photo.

were marketed only in Eastern Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio. While the 1st series of 49 cards were marketed in large numbers nationwide.

My understanding as to why this occurred was due to litigation problems between the BOWMAN GUM CO. and the LEAF GUM CO. in 1949.



All 49 cards in this 2nd series are displayed in this thread in Posts #22, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31.





1st Series.....issued March 1949













2nd Series.....issued Summer 1949

Ted mentions the Bowman/Leaf lawsuit. Here is a contemporary Boston Globe article on the suit filed by Boston ace Warren Spahn and five other players. May 5, 1949.

Furthermore,
BOWMAN also sued LEAF over the use of BOWMAN's logo "BASEBALL BUBBLE GUM" on their waxpacks.

We have here a rare occurrence in Sportscards where a well-known Baseball player's Rookie card is actually his Football card.

My favorite 1949 LEAF FB card, Johnny Lujack.

Note
LEAF continued printing the FB cards (Fall of 1949) with the Gray cardboard stock of which they printed the 1949 BB cards.


So, let's see some more of your 1949 LEAF BB cards.

Sorry to bump on old thread but this caught my eye as I was rabbit holing something. How does a card get this rounded of corners and not have creases? Pretty nice centering too.

Great thread, btw.

It's a beat up version of one of my favorites in my set.

Hi Leon..... " How does a card get this rounded of corners and not have creases? "

Not unusual. When we were not flipping these LEAF's in 1949, we were "scaling" them (from a distance of about 6 feet, or so) towards the front stoop of our homes.
The guy whose card was the closest to the 1st step of the stoop won all the cards piled upon the pavement. If you should get a "leaner", you won twice the number
cards piled upon the pavement. And, if someone knocked down your leaner with his toss, he tripled the win. Typically, anywhere from 2 to 6 guys would participate
in this game. It was a very popular sport among us 10 year old kids in the late 1940's to early 1950's.
So these thick cardboard LEAF cards did not easily crease, but their corners sure became quite worn. Here are 4 examples from my original (70 year-old) collection.
Note, no creases but quite worn corners. I have many more of these "rounded -cornered" cards. However, they are hidden away in my "mysterious archives", which
I cannot find.
