The 1933 Tattoo Orbit (R305) baseball set consists of 60 cards measuring 2’ by 2-1/4”, initially distributed in one-cent packs of Tattoo gum, a product of Orbit Gum Company, subsidiary of Chicago’s Wrigley’s Gum. The card fronts display a black-and-white, or closer to flesh-toned, player depiction with red, green and yellow background. A thin black line separates the player from the ballpark background. Each unnumbered card shows the player posing, either pitching or batting, with his name printed boldly at the top with the backs revealing the player name, position, team, date of birth, height and weight. The set is anchored by rarities Bump Hadley, George F. Blaeholder, Ivy Paul Andrews and Rogers Hornsby as well as Jimmy Foxx, Dizzy Dean, Robert M. Grove, James J. Levey and numerous Hall of Fame enshrines.
