Strip cards, also classified as "w" cards, were produced as early as 1902.  These types of cards were issued in long strips, often counting as many as eight to ten cards per strip.  They were sold with the intent of the purchaser cutting them by hand. That fact, combined with the purchase price of approximately a penny, led to these types of cards' popularity with young children.  As you may have guessed, this cards are often found with unusual cuts and in poor condition.

1920-1921 W514

Featured Card     Most of my strip cards come from the w514 set. This set is to strip cards (a.k.a. "w" cards) what the t206 set is to tobacco cards; that is the most popular of all strip sets. This is more than likely for a couple of reasons. First, it is the largest strip card set in existence; and second, it contains more cards of the famed Black Sox players than any other set around. Each card measures approximately: 1-3/8' x 2-1/2'. Although commonly thought to have been issued first in 1919, the set did not actually appear until 1920.
