Card front (box panel, blank back)
This blog recently profiled Bobby Lowe as the first to hit 4 homers in one game (1970 SCFC #5 profile), but that happened in 1894, before baseball's "modern" cutoff of 1901. Several matched Lou's feat since; as a Seattle fan, my favorite's Mike Cameron in 2002.
Bazooka's printed 12 panels of black-and-white photos and achievements from the pre-WWII era.
- No-Hit Duel by Toney and Vaughn
- Alexander Conquers Yankees
- Lazzeri Sets AL Record
- Home Run Almost Out of Stadium
- Four Consecutive Homers by Gehrig
- No-Hit Game by Walter Johnson
- Twelve RBIs by Bottomley
- Ty Ties Record
- Babe Ruth Hits Three Homers in Game
- Calls Shot in Series Game
- Ruth's 60th Homer Sets New Record
- Double Shutout by Ed Reulbach
Full boxes include 4 more "All Time Greats" on its side panels, 2 visible in this scan (Frank Chance and Mickey Cochrane).
Full box #5
Value: Full boxes get pretty expensive, but I snagged this ragged-edge panel for $10 on eBay.
Fakes / reprints: Haven't seen any in the marketplace and I doubt modern collectors would buy an oversized, black-and-white set if Topps tried reprints.
