Complete set of 30 7/8" pins, each of which were sold attached to a white cardboard backing.  The pins feature the headling "Our National Game" and "A Baseball Hero" flanking each of the pins on top and bottom.  Set includes Berger, Chiozza, Cronin, Crosetti, Dean, DeMaree, DiMaggio, Feller, Foxx, Gehrig, Gehringer, Gomez, Greenberg, Hadley, Hartnett, Hubbell, Lewis, Mancuso, McCarthy, Medwick, Moore, Ott, Powell, Ripple, Ruffing, Schumacher, Selkirk, Simmons, Terry and Trosky - a total of 16 Hall of Famers.  Quite a bit of star power in such a small set.  Not traditional pinbacks, these pins feature a bendable "tab" instead of an actual pinback, which enables the pins to easily fall off their cardboard backing.  For this reason we have kept the pins in their plastic sheets for scanning.

Pins average G to VG in grade, with some age-related toning to both the pins and their cardboard backing.  Most exhibit slight surface wear around the edges, and in most cases the pins have slid off their backing.  Despite this, a very attractive and interesting issue, difficult to complete in any grade.
