Show us an interesting card that we may not have seen before

Post by fisherboy7 on Sun Oct 25, 2009 2:10 pm

My pick is this E104-3 Sam Crawford. I don't own it, but wish I did. Up until a few years ago when this one popped up, I didn't even know it existed. The type 3 Nadjas are so intriguing because only a handful of each subject exists, and with new discoveries still being made, the checklist may still be incomplete. Imagine a E104-3 Cobb or Matty, what monster cards those would be!

Ben that Crawford is fantastic. Love it!! My pick, (which I own) is this M131 Baltimore News Newsboy Tris Speaker.
These pop up frequently, but usually are a common. SGC mistakenly has labeled this one as an E94 underneath the
Newsboy name on the flip.

Here are the e104-3s I used to own. As been mentioned, when new groups are found, it's not uncommon for new cards to be added to the checklist. All these have Nadja backs and the Schmidt and Wiltse were new with a Nadja back and the Magee was a new card for the set.




As for my contribution of cards you rarely see, two cards at the top of most people's funniest cards list

I looks like Hencle is getting ready to get an enema! That is one crazy card. Is he supposed to be sliding headfirst into a base and that part got cropped out?

Theories on the Hengle card range from sliding into a bag, to sleeping because he had to stand still so long for the photo to him being shot dead. Whatever the reason for the pose, it's one great card.

This set has some outrageous colors. I'd certainly enjoy seeing a compilation of a color set for these. Has anyone put together such a display?

Not everyone agrees on what a card is, and some may think lightly of some of the contributions in this post.
I am more interested in items which to me portray events in baseball history. For example this item depicts a young infielder just learning to pitch. His name is Jim Devlin.



After a few years hitting and fielding fairly well with some power, he found his own on the mound. His performance brought him on a par with the best in the league from 1875 - 77.However, in the latter year, after receiving information regarding fixed games, League president William Hulbert investigated and ordered players to authorize Western Union to release all telegrams sent or received during the 1877 season. All players complied except shortstopBill Craver, the team's captain.
The telegrams indicated that
pitcherJim Devlin, left fielder George Hall, and utility player Al Nichols intentionally lost games in exchange for money. No direct evidence was found implicating Craver. All four were banned from baseball for life, Craver for refusing to comply with the investigation.

1859 - Oldest Photo of Ball Grounds in Cleveland
This ambrotype, a photographic image made by a wet-plate process, depicts Cleveland's Public Square. It was probably taken in the autumn of 1859 by Albert Bisbee. Within the image can be seen the Public Square fountain, Second Presbyterian Church, Trinity Episcopal Church, and St. Paul's Episcopal Church. In the foreground lies the outline of a ball diamond.

Along with other teams, the Forest Citys played at this park.

After his university adventures, Adrian once again took up life in Marshalltown and returned to playing ball for the town team. He showed considerable talent with the bat and soon joined his father Henry and older brother Sturgis on the Marshalltown Base-Ball Club. With Cap at third base, Sturgis in center field, and Henry at second base, the Marshalltown team became the most prominent team in the state of Iowa and traveled as far as Omaha, Nebraska to play in tournaments.

While a member of the Marshalltown nine, Adrian took part in an exhibition game against the powerful Rockford Forest Citys of Rockford, Illinois. The Forest Citys club was a formidable powerhouse in the late 1860s. It boasted pitcher Albert Spalding and shortstop Ross Barnes.



Of course, this was the start of what history we have from this pioneer.

Cool cards guys, thanks for sharing.

I know it's not baseball, but this thread just wouldn't be complete without an appearance by Lotta:

Some of you may not have seen this Cobb. I only came across it recently ( but I'm no journeyman):

I can confirm the existence of another Standard Biscuit Ruth, because I owned one maybe 6 years ago. It was in terrible shape, about a hundred creases in it. Wish I had a scan but alas, you'll have to take my word for it.
