Baseball card production was virtually halted in the early 1940's due to paper shortages created by World War II. The "Modern Era" of baseball cards began in 1948 when Bowman Gum Inc. offered one card and one piece of gum in a pack for a penny.
The first important football set was the Mayo set featuring college players in 1984. Other than the 1935 National Chicle set no other key football set was issued until 1948 when noth Bowman and Leaf produced sets.
1967 Topps WHO AM I ?NM/MINT to MINT COMPLETE 1976 Crane Potato Chip Football Discs Set.
It's easy to see why the 1967 Topps "Who Am I? set is a favorite of both sports and non- sport collectors. The set's 44 cards feature mostly important figures from world history but what makes this set even more popular was the inclusion of 4 of baseball's most popular players: Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Sandy Koufax !!!
The players picture on the front is covered with a scratch-off disguise with silly, exaggerated features like hair, moustaches, hats, noses... and clues to help kids identify the famous person pictured. The backs contained additional clues and instructions to "Scratch off disguise on front to discover Who I Am. Use a coin or fingernail."
Cards with their scratch-off coating intact are worth many, many times cards with the coatings removed. For example, NM/MINT Babe Ruth with the coating is in the $200-$400 range while a NM/MINT Ruth with the coating removed is closer to $25.

A drawing of the player's home park along with a brief write-up also appeared on the front. The backs included team and league logos.
