1928 Tharp's F50 (1972 TCMA reprint) #4: Red Faber, Chicago White Sox, P
The F50 ice cream sets were probably the most definitive sets of the late 1920's. Consisting of a total of 60 different 1-3/8" x 2-9/16" cards, the F50 set was produced by 3 different ice cream companies--Tharp's, Yuengling's, and Harrington's. The sets made by the 3 ice cream companies were nearly identical except for the message on the card back. Also, 2 different versions of the #6 Babe Ruth card exist. The complete set was reprinted in its original size by TCMA in 1972.
