Here are nearly six dozen cards from the first three years of the Red Man Tobacco cards four-year run from 1952-55, the colorful 3 ½-by-4-inch cards that were inserted with pouches of tobacco and featured many of the greatest stars of the era. This grouping, which features 20 Hall of Famers, is broadly Good to Excellent, with a few below, and fairly typical of how these cards are found in mature collections. Most of the cards affixed with a Fair designation actually present a bit better than that – closer to the broader group – but wind up with that grade because of extraneous writing. Of the 33 cards from 1952, 13 have the tab intact. Breakdown of 1952 Red Man Tobacco with Tabs (13): Ashburn – Fair, Coan – Good, DiMaggio – Fair, Fain – Fair, Hamner – Good, Feller – Fair, Groth – Fair, Jones – Good, Roberts – Fair, Hegan – Fair, Shantz (2) – Fair and Avila – Good; 1952 Red Man Tobacco (20): Ashburn – Fair, Chambers (2) – Fair, Fain (2) – Very Good, Fox – Fair, Groth – Fair, Hearn – Fair, Lockman – Fair, Porterfield – VG, Shantz – VG-Ex, Stephens (3) – Ex, VG and Good, Torgeson – Fair, Wertz – VG and Yost (2) – Good and Fair; 1953 Red Man Tobacco (22): Dropo (2) – VG and Ex, Fox (3) – Ex, VG and Good, Jensen – VG, Kell – Ex, Mitchell – Ex-Mt, Reese – Ex, Robinson – Fair, Roberts – Fair, Wynn – Ex, Kiner – Ex-Plus, Sauer – VG, Schoendienst (2) – VG-Ex and VG, Hamner (2) – Ex-Mt and VG, Shantz – Good, Westrum – Ex, Vernon – VG and Wilhelm – Ex; 1954 Red Man Tobacco (13): Ashburn – VG-Ex, Busby – Ex, Fox – Ex, Crandall – VG-Ex, Kell – Ex-Mt, Piersall – Ex-Mt, Schoendienst – VG-Ex, Rice – Ex, Pafko – Ex, Mueller – VG-Ex, Kluszewski – VG, Lollar – VG and White – Ex.
