R336 1941 Play Ball baseball cards This set from Gum Inc. was comprised of 72 cards, each measuring 2-1/2 x 3-1/8".

Card fronts featured a colorized photo of the player (some repeated from the 1940 set, though colorized since that set was black-and-white), surrounded by a thin frame and a white border, with the player's name along the bottom.

Card backs gave the card number and player name, followed by player biographical data and a paragraph of text regarding his career. At the bottom was an advertisement either for the company's other card types, or for Blony gum.

Despite the relatively low number of cards in the complete set, #'s 49-72 are considered 'high numbers' which were released later on, and are more difficult to find. 12-card sheets exist.

Prominent cards in this set include:
1 - Eddie Miller
6 - Carl Hubbell
8 - Mel Ott
13 - Jimmie Foxx
18 - Hank Greenberg
54 - Pee Wee Reese
63 - Dom DiMaggio
70 - Bill Dickey
72 - Lefty Gomez
