This card caught my attention. What is the story behind this one?

    From the BIBLE: "The 72 card set was a test issue and received rather limited distribution around Massachusetts. The cards were sold three per pack for five cents with a piece of gum, or in two-card packs with no gum."

    Looks like the Ryan card is by far the most expensive in the set.
    STAY HEALTHY!

    It was tough having to sell almost my entire collection of ~1,700 PSA graded cards from the 1910s - 1970's and my ~250 - 300 Graded Packs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. But when your daughter AND your wife are diagnosed with Cancer, sometimes you don't have a choice. One day I'll get some of them back!

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I just checked the pop report and there are some different variations.

    This card is a Pop 16 with none higher.

    If the Ryan card is by far the most expensive this must be a player registry fueled card.

    Wow, I wonder what a White Back would go for?

    extremely tough card--waited for 5 years before 1 came up for me to add to my '74 Deckle Edge set--currently #6

    it is by far the Big Kahuna of the set--

    I have been trying to complete this set 3 ways, gray backs, white backs and Undeckled proofs. But still 3 white backs short. Fortunately the Ryan is done
