Redemption Markings? Empty Redemption Markings?

Post by v117collector Fri Dec 12, 2008 7:55 pm

Has anyone noticed the felt pen markings on some Maple cards that have sold in past auctions? For example in the CSA, there was a group that sold with a few cards marked with the same felt. Not thinking much of these markings and only concerned with condition for upgrading, I decided not to engage in bidding.

Just recently, there was a Bottomley Rc that sold on Ebay with the same felt pen mark. Sad

I’m not sure but I think these cards have redemption markings, so they couldn’t be resubmitted for more wins.

Your thoughts?

Redemption Markings? Empty Felt Tip markings

As I recall, felt tip markers were not introduced until the 1960's. Are you suggesting the company had a redemption offer 40 years after the cards were printed ?

Crayons were certainly around back then, though. (invented in 1903)

I would imagine that you would be able to feel that residue pretty easily, however.

Looks to me like it could be crayon. But the redemption methods you see on cards from that era are always more obvious, ie. hole punch or trimming a coupon. I'm thinking those Crispettes just belonged to a young collector with a penchant for coloring, and are not redeemed.

BTW, nice Bottomley.

The two middle ones and the Bottomley all have the one side of the glove colored a little darker than the rest. Looks like the same little hands were having fun with each of them.
