Parallels

Red Backs

Inserted into each pack is a Red Back parallel, in which the text on the back is printed in red ink -- as opposed to black on the base cards. The 30 cards that were short-printed in the base set (#74-#103) were also SPed in this set.

1941 Series

1941 Series partially-parallels the first 73 cards of the base set, in the 2 1/4" X 3 1/8" size of the original 1941 Play Ball set.

Original Artwork Redemptions

Randomly inserted into packs were 90 one-of-one redemption cards good for the artwork used to create the cards in the Upper Deck Play Ball set. Each card has long since expired.
