The 1954 Red Man Tobacco issue included 50 cards (25 American and 25 National League), measuring 3 1/2" x 4" with the "tabs" affixed to the bottom.  Three of the cards (George Kell, Same Mele and Dave Philley) are found with two different team affiliations, and there are two card #19s - one of Gus Bell, and one of Enos Slaughter - all the variations bring the total "master" set count to 54.

Presented is 51 cards of the 54-card master set, each with the coupon "tabs" affixed to the bottom of the cards.  Missing from the collection are card #2b Billy Cox, #4b (George Kell - Chicago), and #9a (Dave Philley - Cleveland).  This is an exceptional collection of Red Man cards, a nearly complete set with just three relatively easy to find cards needed for completion.  Condition breakdown is as follows: EX-MT or better: 10%, EX: 16%; VG-EX: 29%; VG: 33%; G: 12%.  A breakdown of the key cards is as follows: Ashburn (VG/EX), Berra (EX-MT), Campanella (VG), Ford (VG), Mathews (VG/EX), Mays (EX), Reese (VG/EX), Rizzuto (VG/EX) Snider (P), Spahn (VG).  Each card in the collection presents extremely well, with crisp color and very minor flaws accounting for the grades in most cases.  Completing a Red Man Tobacco set is an achievement, particularly with the tabs intact.  51 cards total.
