This card was originally affixed to a display sheet, as it was a third prize winner premium card to be selected by the bearer of a regular JBR 2 card with the number "3" stamped on the back. Many JBR 2a cards are simply enlarged versions of regular JBR 2 cards, but this one is not. In 1950, Starffin, coming off a league leading 27 win season in 1949, slumped to an 11-15 record. However the great Russian star, who also compiled a .237 lifetime batting average, did manage to hit .333 in 1950. Blank backed.

Size: 2 15/16" x 3 7/8"

Condition: A crease near the right shoulder. Otherwise, the card would grade at least Ex. Extra glue and paper on the blank back since the manufacturer offered this card mounted on display sheets only. All examples of this card contain this same extra paper and glue.
