Possibly unknown Jimmy Foxx card? Help!
Hi all,
I have a Jimmy Foxx card that I cannot find info on anywhere. It's old, black & white. On the bottom in small print it does say "AL 180". Possibly meant American League?
It's from when he was in the Philadelphia A's. I've seen cards that have similar poses (possibly the same photo shoot) but slightly different. It had belonged to my grandma. She used to have a crush on him when she was young. She's not around anymore, so I don't have her to get details from about the card.
If anyone can help me with any origin/backstory/value etc I would be very grateful!
I've included a pic to help out.
Thank you!
-Joe

Very nice find. It looks like it's a W574.

^ Agreed....those were strip cards, and you can tell this one was hand cut, especially on the right side. Definitely a nice card.

I think his scanner just cut it off.
