This unusual card set is highly sought after by collectors. It features 30 criminals and only 5 cops, with each ohoto tinted a different color (red, brown, green, orange, and purple, and each character can be found in all colors).
The card front shows a tinted portrait of a character, with his name at the top and the name of the card series at bottom. The back of the card gives the card number, the name of the character, and a paragraph of text about him, followed by copyright matter at the bottom.
The characters depicted on these cards are fictional.
Note: These cards originally came with extra 2/3-length tabs attached at the top (see perforations on top of the card at the right), which were labeled 'Evidence' and given the same card number along with a block of text. The vast majority of surviving cards no longer have this tab still attached, so when one is found, it commands a high premium with collectors.
Note again that each character can be found in each color variation, which means that a collector wanting a full set of all variations would have to amass 175 different cards.
Value: Cards from this set without tabs (which are graded as being whole without the tab) in otherwise Excellent condition can bring up to $20.00 to $25.00 each. A full set might bring $750.00 to $1,000. Note that cards with tabs will probably bring 25-50% more.
