1936 S&S Game Baseball Cards
The 1936 S&S Game Baseball Card Set is comprised of 52 unnumbered cards and have pictures and vital statistics of players. Resembling a deck of "playing cards", the 1936 S&S Game Baseball Cards are 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" in size, with rounded corners and blank backs. The star-packed 1936 S&S Game Baseball Card Set contains 19 members of the Hall-of-Fame, including: Jimmy Foxx, Bill Dickey, Frankie Frisch, Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell, and the Waner brothers.
The 1936 S&S Game Baseball Cards were originally issued as part of a board game, called "The National Game", manufactured by the S&S Company of Chicago. Each game contained a deck or set of 1936 S&S Game Baseball Cards, with either green or creme colored backs. The game also came with two additional cards, that provided directions on game paly, that are not considered part of the standard set.
The 1936 S&S Game Card Set is probably the most affordable pre-war baseball card sets available today. The sets were distributed by a wholesale card vendor, as late as the 1970s, and many cards still exist in near perfect condition.
