I found a Dick Bartell Phila Natl at bat Card. It measures 2 1/4 x 2 3/4. It shows bartell swinging a bat, and a catcher behind him. The card is red and an aqua blue. The back has no identifying card co., at the top it says No. 424, and right under it states that this is one of a series of 24 cards. The Bio states "Played semi pro ball. Pittsburgh picked him up and sent him to Bridgeport Club in the Eastern League for further seasoning . Was recalled in 1928. After playing 3 years with Pittsburgh club, was traded to the Phillies in 1930, and has played for them ever since. He is 24 years old , five ft. nine in. tall weighing around 148 lbs. He bats and throws right-handed. He is a dangerous hitter in the pinch and a wonderful fielder. His batting average for last year was .308 in 154 games." Anybody have a clue as to what year and manufacturer it might be?

I do know that he played in the majors: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=bartedi01

What exactly do you want to know? What kind of card it is? What it's worth?

This is a 1932 R337 Series of 24. According to the 2006 Beckett Almanac, "The cards in this 24-card set measure 2-5/16" x 2-13/16". The "Series of 24" is similar to the MP and Co issues in term of style and quality. Produced about 1932, this set is numbered 401-424...."

Funny enough, the Bartell card is the one pictured in the almanac. Priced from $100-$50.

1933 R337 Eclipse Imports (sold in 8 card strips).

Fairly rare but known as "The ugliest cards of all time" so the value is kept low.

If it was a real photo and not a drawing by a 4 year old kid, it would sell for a couple hundred, because they are fairly rare.

R337 common (like Bartell) Sells for about $25-$40 in VG.



Edited to say, I see TwinsCards got it first. Maybe I should read all the posts before replying. :)
