A 2009 find of a box of these previously unknown “cards” were in a 2009 REA auction. The box consisted of 83 cards, which included an apparent set of 16 different. Included were a total of 15 baseball of which there were the 3 different listed. The winner of the lot has consigned the duplicates which have appeared in our 2010-2012 auctions. The set is near mint-mint. Each card has two tiny factory punched slits which it is suspected would propel the cards. Assuming the 16 cards are a complete set which appears to be the case, this is the only complete set known and includes 3 non-baseball cards (Ed Brendel, Hoot Gibson and Tom Keen) which are the only copies known. Included are several packs of “Whiz Bang” Gum and a package of strings that apparently would go through the two tiny slits. Winning Bid $5,000
