1923 W515-1 Baseball Cards
The 1923 W515-1 strip baseball card set closely resembles its sibling set, designated in the American Card Catalog as W515-2. Both W515 subsets share the same 60 card checklist and feature cards with colorful player drawings. Furthermore, the cards are surrounded by a white border and are labeled with the player's name, team name, position as well as the card number. However, what makes W515-1 cards unique is they're smaller in size, measuring approximately 1 3/8 x 2 1/4.
W-cards, or strip cards, were intended to be cut into individual cards, either by a shopkeeper or the kids themselves.
