The backs advertise a contest and reads "SAVE THIS PICTURE." At the bottom it reads "CURTIS IRELAND CANDY CORPORATION 24 South Main Street St. Louis, Missouri."
Some of the Hall-of-Famers included in this set are the: 1923 E123 Curtis Ireland Candy Ty Cobb, Frank Home Run Baker, Johnny Evers, Rogers Hornsby, Walter Johnson, Connie Mack, Babe Ruth and Tris Speaker.
