1) All 10 players except O'Doul in the W553 set are now in the baseball Hall of Fame).

2) Mickey Cochrane is the only player in this set that is absent from the better known R316 Kashin set. The images for all players in W553 are derived the same Charles Conlon artwork that is used in the Kashin issue.

3) Earlier hobby checklists included five additional players in the W553 set (Blue, Foxx, Maranville, Miller and Traynor). While all of these players are found in the closely related R316 Kashin and the Leader Novelty sets that are based on the same artwork of Charles Conlan, these five players have never been verified in the W553 set.
