Set Summary
  • Produced in 1914 by Pritchard Publishing Company, NY
  • Stamps of players of 2 NY teams - Giants and Yankees
  • Black and white player portraits on white bordered stamp
  • Rectangular frame with baseball theme; backs are blank

  • This set of baseball stamps was produced in 1914 by Pritchard Publishing Company. The company's New York City location helps explain why players from only the Giants and the Yanks are found in the set. The 18 known players in the set are equally divided between the two teams. The very obscure stamps are unnumbered and have blank backs. They are not listed in the American Card Catalog.

    The black and white player portraits on the stamps are surrounded by a rectangular red border inside a larger blue frame. A "National League" or "American League??" title is printed at the top and positioned over a stylized eagle. Baseball bats and balls form the right and left sides of the frame, with the player's name and team printed in a white panel at the bottom.

    Details of the set's producer, as well as the purpose and method of distribution for the set, are currently unknown to collectors.
