Just once, it was nice to be in the right place AT the right time!

For those who do not recognize these, they are the Fleer Stickshift set.

These are Japanese menko cards from the mid to late 50s. It was common for these Western themed cards to be issued in strips. I have a sumo set from 1956 in this style. Made by the Mitsuwa Gangu Company. It is uncataloged and the names on the front of the menko read "red face""outlaw""Winchester" etc. Just generic names. There are dozens of menko sets from the 1950s and 1960s with western themes. I have other sets and would like to catalog these western themed menko someday like I have with sumo menko.

Jon, the Stickshift PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD card haunts me. My friends older brother had 1 of these Hemi, Lime Green under a tarp in front yard for years. He offered to sell it to me for $2000.00 in 1980. DOINK! Now I watch barret jackson as my 2K dream has now mushroomed into a 175,000 dream! (sigh)

Just some assorted stuff I don't need:
Family..My Great Grandma (indian)school pic just uncovered. Couple and man with gun sewn together..family
You know you are a redneck if...(pssft!)

I posted a couple of these a week or two ago asking for ID help. I received an email from a VERY knowledgable collector who thinks they may be S42 Silks. Here are the others:

The Cuda,GTX and Superbird take me back to the mid 60's when on Friday nite everyone would go to BoB's Big Boy and all kinds of these great cars would circle around the resturant "showing off". My question is, there used to be a car like the Superbird but we called it a Superbee. Was there a different car with that name or are they one in the same?

The Super Bee was the Dodge version of the Plymouth Road Runner.

Flubadub - the Dodge version of the Plymouth Super Bird was the Daytona. Same wing, same front end piece. Basically, both were produced for the NASCAR wars, but NASCAR outlawed them after a single season.

Glad to see the interest in the muscle car cards. The Stickshift set is probably the most difficult of all U.S. produced car sets (even more difficult than the ATC Auto Drivers and Automobiles). I just happened to be at the right spot at the right time.

Jon.

I rarely do the antique mall thing anymore but had last Friday off and decided to strike out. Hit a couple different malls and landed these two A32 Dukes plates. The A32 'album' is actually a folio with ten plates like these. They are 5x8 inch cabinet type photos of sporting girls and very tough to find.....best of all I was able to snare them for a very reasonable amount.....

My new favorite wrapper. I think this is from 1938. Can anyone confirm or propose a different date? Thanks - Jack J.

I've been really lucky lately on the wrappers. Like you, Claude, I've got a date in my data base I can't document. I've also seen the 1936. Where is the Patent info when you need it? Thanks for your comments.

I think 1936 is what I remember and found it in one of my "benji" guides. I collected these for a time early 2000's...Got some "minty" ones from a family that discovered a big stack of these from relative ...listed wrong...then listed right...then solicitations from them after they found out what they were really worth...then they got NARUed off ebay...got contacted again and again by guy in family who wanted to trade for old fishing equip? Anyhoo, wanted cash upfront after that and then said they would be in my "area" would I want to meet and buy what they had left...eh, um...NO!
Never heard from them again after that.
I think this is the only issue from NEWPORT PRODUCTS...Could be wrong.

All I know folks.

Neat Wrapper for sure JJ

Charley - I think I bought some cards from those same guys too. I questioned how I just "bought it now" on six Battleship cards and they were immediately listed on Ebay again. Here's the reply I got from the seller.

"Dear Jack, It's a long story ! My dad and his best friend mike worked for the Newport card gum company in Rhode Island.
Well dad and mike got drafted and got sent to the Pearl Habor airbase at Hickam field.
my dad was awarded the Bronze star for savivg a fire fighters life with his army belt after his leg was blow off.
My dad and mike watched this massive attack when the Japanese bombed Pearl Habor.
Jack, i also have a best friend named Mike Jr. whom i served with in the U.S.Navy diving demo team.
Well Mike Jr. is the son of my fathers best friend who he served with in Pearl Habor. Mike and his family come to my home and spend the Christmas and new year holiday with me and my family.
We have been celebrating the holidays together for the past 16 years after we both discharged from the U.S. naval diving unit.
Mike and i only sell these cards during the Christmas holiday in memory of our fathers and the men and women who died fighting for this once great nation. Sincerely,JC"

As you can see, there was a lot more about family history than about the cards. I wrote back and asked for any more info on the Newport Products company and if he had any documentation from the past. I tried to play to his ego, mentioning all the folks on the web that would love to know more. I never got a reply. I've seen the same cards listed a couple of times since then. I guess they have a stash of some cards and break them out whenever they need a little cash. I've got about half the set and would love to have more. -Jack J.

Excellent back-story!

Jack,

It's the story behind the cards and wrappers which I find the most fun about the hobby. The back story you shared, and the history of why a collector collects an individual item, is what makes the hobby so intriguing and addictively fun. I enjoyed reading your post. I'll probably re-read it again tonight and tomorrow.
