Presented is a 57-card near set of 1958 Hires Root Beer collectibles (numbered 10 through 76) which all but one have had the promotional tabs removed as intended. This is the only series of cards Hires Root Beer produced except for a small "test" set of the same year. (This would have been quite a difficult set to assemble as it would have required the consumption of nearly 400 bottles of root beer.) Highlights include: #'s 23 Reese (NM), 44 Aaron (EX/MT), 46 Thomson (EX/MT), 54 Neal/With Tab (EX/MT), 55 Drysdale (NM), 61 Snider (EX/MT) and 70 Kluszewski (NM). Missing #'s 10, 16, 21, 25, 30, 37, 52, 68 and 69 for completion. Grades 42% NM to NM/MT, 58% EX to EX/MT including a few lesser and a couple trimmed.
