Card Size:
1-7/8 x 2-7/8
Set Description:
Until recently, very little was known about this unusual and rare issue, which advanced collectors have always referred to it as the "Star Player Candy set." The manufacturer is not identified on the card, but from the recent unopened box and pack find offered elsewhere in this auction, we now know this is a gum issue produced by John H. Dockman & Sons of Baltimore. The attribution of this set as "Star Candy" or "Star Player Candy" dates back at least fifty years, and was very likely the title of the set when issued by Dockmans. In the old days, collectors identified these cards as R317, but sometime during the 1980s, that catalog designation was somehow taken over by Uncle Jacks Gum. The sepia-toned cards measure 1-7/8 x 2-7/8 inches, and are printed on thin stock. The player's name is printed below the image without a team designation. Unlike the 1929 "Star Player Candy" cards (which have a short biography with the card number), the reverse of the 1928 cards are blank-backed.
