For three years Grand Studio produced Milwaukee Brewers 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" in honor of the hometown heroes. According to the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards (Bob Lemke) these were most likely sold at Borchert Field during the season.
Leftover relics from when the Milwaukee Brewers were a minor league team, this complete set of 22 black and white cards features dazzling shots and facsimile signatures of 1943 Brewers players.
These high grade card average EX/MT and border on a grade higher.
