Offered as a send-in set through a radio station promotion. 12 of these have back damage due to album removal, and a number of them have been trimmed, some resulting in some interesting angles, but you can search a LONG time to find this many of these in one place. Some interesting discoveries researching the players. Only one player from the team ever made the majors and he isn't included. Even though the set is ascribed to 1947 there are players who didn't play for Tacoma until 1947 but one player, Cleve Ramsey, who only played for them in 1946. Also Harry Nygard, the only player with a tiger on his jersey instead of the word "Tacoma" according to baseball reference NEVER played for Tacoma. Finally, the Cy Greenlaw card is one of the 4 in this lot with a duplicate, however one card has a sepia tone to it and DOESN'T have the Series A designation on top as the more black and white version does, so apparently there are some variations in the set. A cool issue you can really go down the rabbit hole with!
