1911 E-unc Baseball Bats

Post by ItsOnlyGil on Sat Oct 10, 2009 11:23 pm

VERY RARE - These cards were printed on the back pannel of "Base-Ball Bats" penny candy boxes. They are found with a tan or orange colored borders, and a tan or red color background. Many cards are also found trimmed to the picture area. They are very similar to the 1910 "Orange Border" candy cards but with slightly different design and caption style differences. To date there are 50 different cards known. -fkw
There are three designs of 1911 Baseball Bats. One displays the player on a sepia colored card and two surround that image with an orange border. The two orange border designs differ in that one maintains the sepia card image and background, and the other combines a red background with the image, as shown below. These cards are encountered with the orange borders trimmed off, since the cutting preference was up to the original owner of the candy box. This can be determined by measurement of the card. Their full potential size is 1-3/4 x 2-5/8".

Sepia -



(Magee is not on the VCP list and displays a different font style, so is likely misattributed, and probably does not belong with this set)

Sepia with Orange Border -




With Orange Border and Red Background -
