1934-36 Batter up color variations
I recently picked up a Batter Up of Hank Greenberg, and after researching it, it appears there are different color variations for the cards in the set. Does anyone know the story behind them, or the rarity of the colors?

I believe the color variations were player-by-player. Each player had his own color (even an ugly pink for some unfortunate fellows), but I can't find anything that says each player had different colors.

I appreciate Chicago players that begin competing within the city's sports organizations and stay with these teams throughout their careers.

Thank you. I may have misread the article I read about them.

Low number cards 1-80 come in 6 colors Black and white, Brown, Blue, Red, Purple Green.
High numbers 81 and up come in 4 colors Black, Brown, Green, Blue.
I don't know if any particular color is more rare than others though.

hope this helps!

A great resource for vintage is net54baseball. The guys on the forums there are very knowledgeable. You may be able to find the answers you are looking for by just searching the forums and almost certainly will find the answer by posting your questions there.
