Anyone see this card? (Yum Yum Thompson)

Post by the-illini on Fri Nov 18, 2011 10:28 pm

Just happened to see this card - as a big fan of 19th century stuff this is an amazing find IMO - a HOF'er from a rare but well-known set in excellent condition; congrats to whoever was the winner of this beauty!

I'm pretty sure I know where one other examples resides along with at least one other uncatalogued HOF card from the set.

The card almost looks like a wood cut, really looks sketched instead of a photo. Pretty neat though.

A number of cards in the set are woodcuts.

Of the 19th Cent stuff to go this fall, SCP seemed to have the best. There was the Kelly autograph on that beautiful picture, and also the Cap Anson in Uniform Cabinet:

Very cool stuff from SCP this fall!

Just realized my mistake when asked about the uncatalogued HOFer. The card I am thinking of is a G &B. Easy to confuse as the sets are very similar using the same pics and woodcuts.
