Detailed description on website.
Among the earliest of all baseball sets belongs to the offered 1878 H804-6 Forbes Company Comic Baseball Trade Card set of (6) cards. These colorfully illustrated antiquities measure nearly 3 x 4-1/2" and feature printed baseball identifiers to describe game action. With deference to a thin coating of period residue applied to the reverses, the fronts generally present in (EX-MT) condition. Includes: "A Fly", "Foul", "Home Run", "Judgment", "Muff" and "Twist." NOTE: each card appears to be slightly trimmed from their originally produced size.
