1939 Goudey Premiums - A Teaching Tool

R303B Variation
 In our last post, we took a look at the beautiful 1936 National Chicle Pastels (R312) set.  However, this sharp-looking set that isn't the only 1930's Premiums that have come in this summer's collections.  We have been very lucky this summer to receive many fine collections filled with 1936 Pastels, 1936 National Chicle Fine Pen Premiums (R313), 1936 Goudey Wide Pen Premiums (R314) and 1939 Goudey Premiums (R303).
R303A Variation

The 1939 Goudey Premiums include in three variations - A, B & C.  For the A variation, a full set includes 48 cards that measure 4 inches by 6 3/16 inches and have a brown tone to them.  The R303-B and R303-C sets are larger, approximately 4 3/4 inches by 7 1/4 inches but only have 24 cards in the set.  The R303-B cards have a red color and the R303-C cards have a black and white color. 

How To Pitch Floater
The front of the cards include a nice facsimile autograph to identify the player but what truly makes the 1939 Goudey Premiums so special are the backs of the cards.  The backs of 1939 Goudey Premiums feature "how to" instructions for learning baseball for the kids who purchased them.  These valuable baseball lessons cover topics like "How to bunt," "How to field ground balls," "How to steal bases," and "How to pitch a floater" using written instructions along with truly helpful sketches for any youngster who loves to play baseball.  Even today, the 1939 Goudey Premiums are an excellent baseball teaching tool.
