Issued in 1933 by the Butter Cream Confectionery Corporation of New Jersey, these cards are lightweight, black and white cards that encouraged youngsters to estimate each player's batting average by a point later in the season.  Today, the cards are very rare, and are virtually never found in high grade.  Type collectors are content to simply find one example, and complete sets are virtually nonexistent.

Presented here is an example of Cleveland's Wes Ferrell, believed by some to be the Ferrell brother more qualified for the Hall of Fame (his brother Rick is enshrined as a catcher).  Ferrell won 20 games in six different seasons between 1929 and 1936, his entire career spanning 15 seasons.  The card has been graded GOOD 2 by PSA due to overall surface wear, yet the visual appeal is extremely strong for the issue.
