Basic Features

On the face of the cards was a glossy photo of the player set against a vignette. The player's name, as well as his position and team, appeared in boldface type underneath. Each card's reverse featured a miniature baseball with the words "Genuine Baseball Photo" and the card number written on it. Each player's entire name, position, and team were stated again, followed by vital statistics, a brief biography, and the player's lifetime and previous year stats. These baseball cards come with a marble instead of chewing gum, which was unusual at the time.
