1941 Play Ball baseball cards were the only Play Balls
issued in color, and there are 72 cards to a set. Each
wax pack came with two sticks of gum and one card. This
is the last baseball card set issued before World War II.
The Ted Williams pictured here is prettier in real life,
with a better color (but that may just be my own monitor
issue). He can currently be seen in our ebay store.
(Well, whaddya know? I already posted one of these back in
September. That one was a photo instead of a scan, and you
can really tell the difference.)
