The A&BC Film Stars Album is full and it's nice to have to go with the wrapper. Can anyone tell me what the tank card is from? It is die-cut in a clowd shape above the tank, blank backed, on stiff paper stock and is 2 7/8 inches square. Thanks - Jack J.

I like these Wonder Bread die-cut mechanicals, they're pretty silly. Is there a date or an ACC# for these? -Jack J.

I didn't find the blue version of the 1941 Sky Birds box in the Gallery. Here's one in pretty bad shape. Anyone know how many cards came in this box?

Eric Clapton said "Buddy Guy was to me what Elvis was for others." Clapton said in a 1985 Musician magazine article that "Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive...if you see him in person, the way he plays is beyond anyone. Total freedom of spirit, I guess. He really changed the course of rock and roll blues."

In case you were wondering who is Fayard Nicholas, per Wikipedia:

"The Nicholas Brothers were a famous African American team of dancing brothers, Fayard (19142006) and Harold (19212000). With their highly acrobatic technique ("flash dancing"), high level of artistry and daring innovations, they were considered by many the greatest tap dancers of their day. Growing up surrounded by Vaudeville acts as children, they became stars of the jazz circuit during the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance and went on to have successful careers performing on stage, film, and television well into the 1990s. Fayard Antonio Nicholas was born October 20, 1914 in Mobile, Alabama. Harold Lloyd Nicholas was born March 17, 1921 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They became the featured act at Harlem's Cotton Club in 1932, when Harold was 11 and Fayard was 18. The brothers made their Broadway debut in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1936 and also appeared in Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart's legendary musical Babes in Arms in 1937. By 1940, they were in Hollywood and for several decades alternated between movies, nightclubs, concerts, Broadway, television, and extensive tours of Latin America, Africa, and Europe.

In that exhilarating hybrid of tap dance, ballet and acrobatics, sometimes called acrobatic dancing or "flash dancing," no individual or group surpassed the effect that the Nicholas Brothers had on audiences and on other dancers. A signature move was to leapfrog down a long, broad flight of stairs, while completing each step with a split. Its most famous performance formed the finale of the movie Stormy Weather. Fred Astaire once told the brothers that the "Jumpin' Jive" dance number in Stormy Weather was the greatest movie musical sequence he had ever seen. In that famous routine, the Nicholas Brothers leapt exuberantly across the orchestra's music stands and danced on the top of a grand piano in a call and response act with the pianist. Another signature move was to arise from a split without using the hands. Gregory Hines declared that if their biography were ever filmed, their dance numbers would have to be computer generated because no one now could emulate them. Ballet legend Mikhail Baryshnikov once called them the most amazing dancers he had ever seen in his life."

Wow, Greg, I'm not a collector of those sets but a buck a card or less seems awful cheap to me.

a complete boxed set of INS history cards in the four different boxes inside of an outer box made to look like a faux book with an advertising piece that covers all the titles of the cards and how to play the 'game'. Great condition on all except the corners of the faux book is split. Interestingly, there's a Mayfair decal on the outside which I believe to be the same Mayfair that did the strip card sheets of 10 and potentially the Mayfair Jiggies as well as the elusive Mayfair football cards.

And a Goudey Gum 1930's gas mask premium in original box. Glad to get this one. Kind of an oddball premium to all those Goudey sets I'm still (and forever will be) working on..........

Awesome pick up Tom. Couple of questions. What year was it produced? Does the set have a catalog number or is it documented anywhere? I couldn't find it in the NS Bible.

Thanks on INS...........

I thought it was a fair price. I have seen full sets not in as good of shape sell for similar. I'm sure I've caused you a $ or two in past.......


W612.....listed at (30) cards, there are, of course more than that.....
