The 1953-54 Briggs Meats baseball set is a 40-card set featuring 28 players from the Washington Senators and 12 players from the three New York teams (Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants, New York Yankees). Issued as two-card panels measuring approximately 4-1/8” by 5-1/2”, each pair is cut from a hot dog package from the Washington, D.C. area and featured a bold red border. Once the 2-1/4” by 3-1/2” cards were cut into individual items they showed no border and displayed a full-color posed player photograph with a white strip below the image that had the player’s facsimile signature as well as his printed name. The Senators cards, however, showed the facsimile autograph and some biographical information. These blank-backed cards carried the same photographs of the New York players as the 1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips and 1953-55 Stahl-Meyer Franks. A handful of short-printed cards anchor this set including Gil Coan, John Dixon and Newton Grasso as do Hall of Fame cards from Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Phil Rizzuto and Duke Snider.
