1933 George C Miller Baseball Cards
Although lumped in with gum cards due to its 1933 print date and catalogued as such, George C. Miller & Co. issued their cards along with toffee. They also used them as part of a promotion where kids could redeem a complete set for prizes.
Each team is represented by two players, so there are 32 cards in all. Fronts are multi-colored and feature a painted picture of a player against a generic background. Backs have that player's name, team and other personal info above a checklist of the complete set. The explanation of the promotion appears at the bottom, where a set could be traded for a regulation baseball, a glove or a ticket good for a regular-season baseball game at a nearby park.
In order to limit the number of items to be given away, the card of Yankee pitcher Ivy Paul Andrews was short-printed. Furthermore, when the cards were sent in, they were cancelled either by cutting off part of the bottom or having holes punched in them and then returned to their owner. As a result, many cards are found in less than pristine condition. That said, they're rare and sell well even if they're not complete.
