1935 Schutter-Johnson (R332)

The 1935 Schutter-Johnson (R332) baseball set consists of 50 cards measuring 2-1/4” x 2-7/8” each. Each card features a black line-drawing (in some circles deemed “hastily drawn”) on the front set against a red field and a “Major League Secret” – which is detailed on the reverse. A small border surrounds each front-side portrayal. The Schutter-Johnson Candy Corporation produced the set as a promotional item. The R332 set is anchored by seldom-encountered, extremely high-value examples of Lou Gehrig (#20) and Babe Ruth (#26 and #42), as well as cards from Frank Frisch – Chop Bunt (#4), Rogers Hornsby – How to Practice Control (#7), Christy Mathewson – Fade-Away Pitch (#10), and Dizzy Dean – Curveball (#31). This set is quite an obscure offering which, coupled with its high percentage of Hall of Fame subjects, makes it a difficult ensemble to amass.
