(LOT 48)
1933 Tattoo Orbit Near Set 59/60 PSA Graded and Raw (Missing Hornsby)

RARE OPPORTUNITY!!! The 1933 Tattoo Orbit Baseball cards were issued in Penny Wax Packs of Tattoo Chewing Gum, a product issued by Orbit Gum Co. The Chicago-based company chose not to include any advertising on the cards, not even the Tattoo Orbit logo. The cards are known in the hobby as R305. They measure 2" x 2-1/4", and are yellow and red in color and feature a black-and-white player photo. Also, the player's name is noted at the top with a white border that encloses the design. The plain back has the player's name, position, team, birthday, height and weight. The stock is ultra thin, making the cards risky to wear or damage. Because the cards were produced in Chicago the 60 card set showcases 15 Cubs.

Most of the teams have just 2 players, but an interesting note, the following teams don't have any players on the checklist: New York Yankees, Washington Senators, New York Giants and Detroit Tigers. The 60 card checklist includes 17 Hall of Famers including: Jimmie Foxx, Connie Mack, Dizzy Dean, Mickey Cochrane, Lefty Grove and more. The offered near set of 59/60 is missing Hornsby, but all of the other 59 cards are present. They are PSA graded and Raw with the 46 PSA cards as follows: PSA 7 - Hallahan. PSA 6.5 - Dykes. PSA 6 - Clark, Kamm, Lyons & O'Doul. PSA 5.5 - has. PSA 5 - Root & P. Waner. PSA 4.5 - Haines & Herman. PSA 4 - Alexander, Berger, Bush, Campbell, Cissell, Grove, Grube, Hartnett, Johnson, Jurges, Lombardi, Lucas, Reynolds, Vosmik & Whitney. PSA 4 (MK) - Cochrane. PSA 3 - Foxx, Grimm, Hadley, Hafey, Malone & Warneke. PSA 2.5 - Porter & Tinning. PSA 2 - Bartell, Earnshaw, Grimes, B. Herman, Koenig, Mack & Simmons. PSA 2 (MK) Averill. PSA 1.5 (MK) - Walberg. PSA 1 - Dean & Martin. The balance of the cards are all Raw and in Fair condition. A great opportunity to own this rarely seen near set. Add the Hornsby and you will own a full set!!!
