The 1921 W516-2-1 set consists of 30 cards, each measuring about 1-1/2” x 2-3/8”. Card fronts bear a colorized artist rendering of the respective athlete. A thick, blank border frames all of the elements. The player’s name, team, and position are identified in typeset print at the bottom of the frame. Card backs are blank. The set has a wealth of Hall of Fame and star talent including Grover Cleveland Alexander (#2), Walter Johnson (#3), Rogers Hornsby (#4), Ty Cobb (#5), Tris Speaker (#6), Babe Ruth (#10), Roger Peckinpaugh (#11), and Christy Mathewson (#27). Several of the cards have the players’ name misspelled or misidentified including Hornsby, Ray Schalk (#7), Benny Kauff (#15), Eddie Roush (#22), and Harry Hooper (#24). Like all W-cards, the W516-2-1 series were strip cards that had to be cut from strips available at various outlets such as grocery or candy stores. They also could be purchased as full strips. These collectibles are rarely found in their original condition.
