1934-36 Batter Up Baseball Cards



Product Details

VN:RO [1.9.17_1161]
User Rating:

Batter Up cards were issued over a three-year period by National Chicle and were designed with a die-cut area around the top half of the player that allowed the collector to fold it over and stand it up. As a result, many cards are found with the top portion worn or missing. They weren't the first cards to use die-cuts, but the concept has occasionally resurfaced among card sets over the years.

The set's design was basic. Along with the die-cut player action photo, there is a box in a bottom corner that contains the name, team, position and the words Batter Up. A card number also appears in a lower corner. The cards are blank-backed and include no other information. Cards are black-and-white, but are also found with a variety of tints: blue, green, red, sepia and purple. Though all 192 cards in the set are found with each tint, collectors generally collect a base set without regard for the front color.

There are two distinct series of Batter Up cards, and each measures differently. Cards 1-80 measure 3 1/4" by 2 3/8". Cards 81-192 add first names to the design, are 1/4 inch narrower and harder to find.

Three cards in the high series are multi-player cards. Wally Moses/Billy Webb, Minter Hayes/Ted Lyons and Ivy Andrews/Jim Bottomley appeared more than two decades before Topps began issuing multi-player cards.
