December Pick-ups

Eight days into December and nobody has started the December Pick-ups. Must be a slow month.

I'm pleased to ad this D91 Mother Gooseland card. When I first saw it, I thought it was a cut in half card (it may still be), but there is a note on Todd's site that states, "The cards vary in sizes and many contain multiple numbers on each card." The edges are straight and corners square, so I assume it is factory cut. Any verification on this would be appreciated.

Seems like this set would be a great candidate for its own Gallery page. - Jack J.

For me, an exciting pick-up. I knew that there were more of these, but haven't found one for years.
Top one is the new addition, Smaller & brown horse, Milkman in conductor hat, next 2 are similar - sign on truck diff., last one Rubber tires.
These are fairly though to find, they were given out by the milkman & were often damaged by the weather.

Anyway, some recent pickups...

I thought this was cool! A teacher kit from Sugar Daddy candies.
Included the mail-away wall chart..

Some loose cards (not a whole set but might have been back in the day).
A nice envelope and a letter to the teacher on how to use the cards in the classroom...

A neat coffee booklet circa 1890's I'm guessing...

Been a little more active lately. Actually traded with there people in the recent weeks. Getting closer on Sky Birds and that's my first Minute Biography. That little guy is the final Enviromints to finish my set of 48 that I started in the 1990s. Not vintage but a major accomplishment finishing a set after twenty years.

These look like N309 cards with the advertising trimmed off at the bottom, but they are blank backed. Does that make them something else? I thought they were nice images. - Jack J.

An odd assortment of item. As usual what ever I see that I like I pickup.

All the flag cards have blank backs, all were removed from an album and have minor to moderate damage to the backs.

I picked up this Pirate's Pictures wrapper off ebay for $31 as a project. It bothers me when a wrapper is not maintained in what I consider it's best form. The left image is from the original auction. After about a half hour's work with a little archival tape, I think the image on the right would look much better in a collection. I do have a wrapper in better condition, so this one would be up for grabs. Tom, are you still fighting the wrapper thing? - Jack J.

Back to the N309's..........I'd guess they are N309's with advertising on the bottom for tobacco that was cut off by some mother who didn't want a constant reminder for a kid about tobacco/smoking. If they were blank there'd be no reason to cut them off really..........

And yes, I'm still TRYING to fight wrappers although I collect the Pirate set and that is a FANTASTIC repair job on that wrapper. Can you scan the back so we can see how much archival tape you had to use out of curiosity. Really, really nice job.
