There's the nine players in the set superimposed over a retro Goudey background. Someone out there can probably tell you off the top of his head what year Goudey had that background, but I cannot. 1930-something me thinks.
The only subject I would change is Gary Matthews.
Boy we had high hopes for him as an Angel.
And I'm surprised the EPA didn't have something to say about Garret Andersons card showing a belching factory in the background.
Red back variety obviously.
I think these were produced in the same numbers per color, meaning one color is not more scarce than the other.
