1936 National Chicle Premiums (R312)
It's been an exciting summer at Dean's Cards. In addition to starting the process of scanning our entire inventory for our customers (that's over 1.3 million cards!) and we haven't stopped adding cards either. This summer we have bought many fantastic collections from pre-war years as well as the 1950's and 1960's.
One office favorite from these collections are the 1936 National Chicle Premiums (R312). Also known as Pastels or Color Tints, these cards earn their nickname with exceptional use of color and design. With such eye-catching appeal, it's hard to believe collectors don't go wild for the 1936 Pastel baseball cards - which makes them a great value.
The 1936 Pastels are 4 inches by 5 3/8 inches or approximately the size of a postcard. A complete set of 1936 National Chicle Premiums consists of twenty-five individual player cards, fourteen multi-player cards and eleven in-action photos. In addition, the fifty card set includes stunning images and facsimile autographs for twenty-six Hall of Fame players, including Hank Greenberg, Rogers Hornsby, Honus Wagner, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove, Tris Speaker and one of the earliest Joe DiMaggio cards in a Yankee uniform.
This summer, Dean's Cards has purchased multiple collections of 1936 Pastels and now have more in stock than any other time in our history.
