The offered 1954-1955 Baltimore Orioles Zip Card complete set of (25) cards is as scarce as the origin is elusive. Little is known about these tiny cards, but this collection is comprised of all the known cards found in the series. The skip numbered set includes two size variations, a 2 x 2-5/8" version and a 2-3/4 x 3-5/8" version. From the 1954 series are (8) small cards and (4) large, while the 1955 issue has (8) small and (5) large cards. All of the cards feature black and white images of the Baltimore Orioles’ players from the 1954 and 1955 seasons while each card grades (NM to NM-MT). This is the premier series, save the Esskay set, for the diehard Baltimore Orioles collector.
