Of the nine Red Man cards I own, this is the only one that has its tab intact.
That little strip below the perforated line is there for a reason: After your dad would pass along this card after buying the pack of chew, the first thing you would do was cut off the tab. After collecting 50 stubs, you would send them in along with the name of your favorite ballclub.
And in 1954, what you would get in return was a baseball cap.
While I was not around in 1954, it would be interesting to hear from someone out there who remembers collecting these old cards.
