Description

The burgeoning 1950s regional ďmeatĒ issues have exploded in value over the past couple of years as series from Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis and Washington continually set sales records. This trio of 1953-1954 Briggs Meats/Hunterís Wieners type cards are scarce representations from these acclaimed sets. The 1953-54 Briggs Meats issue presents Hank Bauer (GD, slight red border showing) and Porterfield (VG, slight red border showing on all four edges), while the 1953-1954 Hunterís Wieners set displays Michael Clark (VG). The Porterfield example is crease-free, while the Bauer and Clark specimens each reveal miniscule spider creasing. The surfaces reveal the wax coating and reverse hot dog toning associated with the issues.
