Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions: 2⅜” x 2⅞”
Additional Information: The four cards listed below actually bear indentical fronts. The variation comes on the back of the card, as each of the four cards in the checklist forms a piece of a different puzzle. The card numbers derive from the puzzle location shown on the back of the cards, and the image that each card helps form is listed in parenthesis after the players’ names.

Regular (that is, what passes for “regular” on this site) resumes tomorrow.
The move is complete, and my collection is once again available in its entirety for use in blog posts. However, after all the physical exertion over the past few days, some additional laziness is in order. If you could put a face on how I felt the day after the move, I’d use Jimmie Wilson’s from his 1934 Batter-Up card, #38. I don’t know why he’s grimacing that way, but I’m fairly certain that none of the pitchers on the team at the time could have thrown the ball hard enough for him to make that kind of face after catching a pitch.
What passes for regular posting from me will continue tomorrow.
