All cards have the facts about each player on the back of the card. This book was published by Golden Press, Inc., of New York, 1961. The front and back cover of the booklet has some mild creases and scratching (barely noticable but, worth mentioning). The center staples are rusted, yellowing of pages from age, light stain inside of front cover (not on the card) and back cover has some kind of stain, all 4 corners show some wear. Now, 's the story~we are selling as trading assistance and a customer wants us to sell this booklet for him. He received it from his grandfather many years ago and was going to punch out Grover Cleveland Alexander (and almost successed, top and left side punched but, not completely) when his grandfather noticed him and promptly took the booklet away from him. Then in 1972 t was a great flood in Pennsylvania that destroyed many items in grandpa's cabin along the Susquehanna river. While the cabin was being renovated, low and behold, this booklet was found high and dry on the top of a shelf by the seller himself. So that's the story. I tried to get the best pictures I could for you to view. If you have any questions, please ask and I'll do my best to answer them. We are not and don't claim to be experts in any field tfore this item is being sold as-found, as-is. Insurance of this item is required.
