1949 Eureka Sportstamps

Individual Stamp dimensions: 1½” x 2”
Additional Information: The stamps, featuring only members of the National League — as well as the commissioner of baseball and the president of the National League — were issued as a complete set along with an album for housing them. According to the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, the stamps were issued on team sheets measuring 7½” x 10” and the album issued
with the set provided short player biographies. Beckett refers to this set simply as “1949 Eureka Stamps.”

Beckett’s Phillies portion of the checklist is in error, starting with Richie Ashburn at #127 and including Sawyer at #145. I have confirmed that the checklist printed by SCD in the Standard Catalog (the one shown below) is the correct one — as evidenced by the fact that Robin Roberts is listed as #143 in Beckett and the sample scan above clearly shows he is #144.
