April Pickups

I am starting this on the assumption that the title means the April pickup thread rather than things picked up in April. These are all March finds.

Although small, I think this is a great set of images. I just picked up the last two fronts I need.

This comes with a variety of backs, for instance US and German advertising backs, a French descriptive back, and a paint chip sample:

I also picked up a group of the small mail carriers and stamps. I did not previously have any of the Mother's or Basma and Adam backs. Is the latter an uncataloged T-card?

I picked up 41 Cushman State cards ... compelling artwork and I would love to find the remaining 7.

The final item on today's show and tell is a group of Italian Buitonis. The artwork is reminiscent of the Figurette high numbers.

The price was a bit steep for a flea market find ($1) but worth every penny for one of the hobby's most sought after autographs...

Got this from an attendee at the Boston show. Someone told me he has the highest graded Strange True Story cards of numbers 5 and 6 happy.gif. Richard W., I think that is a machine printed auto. Todd spends most of his time camped out at the flea market and wouldn't have time to sign cards happy.gif

Hey guys. I'm a hockey collector but have been picking up some Canadian non-sports lately. If anyone knows where those Howdy Doody cards came from, let me know. Jim.

Suzanna Promo Record

Score 5.0 (1 person)
April 4 2011, 10:42 PM 

Just got this record that promotes Suzanna, the "Greatest Feature Sennett Has Produced." What drew me to it is the reference to the biscuit and candy cards produced by Shotwell, Telfer and Patterson. Also, whatever was associated with the Iten Biscuit Co. It's a beautiful 78 rpm with Mabel Normand prominently featured on a paper label on the reverse side. I believe this was sent out in advance of general distribution, to radio stations and/or record stores. -Jack

@Jim......those Tuckett autograph cards are tough. I think I have 10-12 of the 25. They also used them for the Taddy set in the UK and the Sparrows chocolates 1914 calendars in the US. They are really tough.

@Jack.....great item on that Suzanna album. Really neat that they spelled out the advertising tie-ins like that. I have about 20 of the Telfair Biscuits cards and 3-4 of the Shotwells. Both are very very tough. That'll go nicely with that Suzanna wrapper you picked up a while back on ebay. Would love to have one of those.....

Picked up this 1938 Sunburst Bakery album containing all 24 Warner Brothers movie stars. The pictures (glued in) measure 4" x 5 3/8" and are blank backed. The word "Sunburst" is printed on the cover and doesn't appear inside, so it's apparently a stock item used by multiple bakeries. Album measures 6" x 9".

Thanks Rick!

Are there any indications in the album if the cards came pre-mounted or if not how they were distributed?


PS: What is the size of the album?

The album is 6" wide and 9" tall; 28 pages including covers. The inconsistency of the gluing seems to indicate that the pictures were inserted individually - I think the pictures were individually distributed by the bakery.
