1953 Red Man Baseball Cards
The 1953 Red Man Baseball Card Set, again, included 52 cards that measure 3½" by 4" with tabs, and 3½" by 3½" without tabs. The Red Man cards with tabs still attached are more expensive, as many were damaged, when torn off and redeemed for a promotion. Fifty 1953 Red Man tabs could be sent in to Red Man and exchanged for a cap of your favorite team.
The 1953 Red Man Baseball Cards claimed to have "the 25 best players in each league, plus the World Series Managers", but it hard to imagine how Willie Mays or Mickey Mantle could be left off of this list, other than refusing to give permission.
