The 1921 W516-2-2 set consists of 30 cards, each measuring about 1-1/2” x 2-3/8”. Issued by the International Feature Service, card fronts bear a colorized artist rendering of the respective athlete with a color border and a thin black line containing the pose. A thick, blank border frames all of the elements. The player’s name, team, position and the card number all are identified in “hand-lettered” print at the bottom of the frame. Card backs are blank. The set is anchored by thirteen Hall of Famers including Walter Johnson (#3), Rogers Hornsby (#4), Ty Cobb (#5), Tris Speaker (#6), Babe Ruth (#10), and Christy Mathewson (#27). Several of the cards have the players’ name misspelled or misidentified including Hornsby, Ray Schalk (#7), Benny Kauff (#15), Dave Bancroft (#21), Eddie Roush (#22), and Harry Hooper (#24). Like all W-cards, the W516-2-2 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 scarcely found in their original state, as surviving singles were most often damaged at the time of cutting.
