July Pick-ups

Got a bargain on this 16 page J15 Church & Co. Arm & Hammer Book of Fishes. It's a little rough, but the inside illustrations are beautiful. - Jack J.

Jason,

Your collection is all over the place; type collecting would be hard for me. It's all good stuff but so diverse.

I started this set back in the 1990's because it had a pirate card in it and I was focused only on pirate stuff back then. I'm now down to needing only one card (#1, Clown) to complete the twenty-four card set. Todd's strongman card will probably be a permanent placeholder in the #4 slot. I really enjoy working on smaller 1930's sets such as I'm Going to Be even if they take me twenty years, or more, to complete. Upgrading might take me another twenty.

IG continues to be a focus. There has been a lot come up lately for which I am glad to have picked up a few. This group includes my first series of 24 as well as two low number skip series of 48s.

Hey Ken (or anybody else),
On the Smarty Pants stickers I had never seen this variety before. I have seen them in blue but not red. Do you know if these mail-away ones are different than the ones in the packs? Looks like there are 3 sets of 13 of the mail-away ones.

WoW...16 new cards ~the newest is 1861

Underwood - dated 1837, Rv. blank [linked image]
1845 text front Elihu Geer printer, 1846 Magigne Printer, Rv. NYC Map

1855 Embossed 1856 Rv. text, 1859 Blank [linked image]

Yes, some would call them boring. But to me any paper prior to 1876 is tough to find. Esp. 60's & older

Morning pickups...

This was just the puzzle in a box. They didn't know if it was complete or not. Thankfully when I got it home it was in fact complete. Also, my wife enjoys puzzles and helped me put it together. So this is one of those few times my wife shared my hobby with me.

Circa 1974. Oversized with interesting artwork.

Lot of neat images in this set - circa 1984.

Smarty Pants Patches

July 5 2015, 11:21 PM 

Todd,
I have not seen the red patches. For sure they are from Armour. The large
size Blue ones that I have must have been issued by some other company.
Are The backs of yours blank?

FROM AN OLD POST
I found some more of the BC16, Post Cereal, Smarty Pants Patches besides the ones that I posted earlier.
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

They were with these larger, 2-1/2" X 2-1/2" Smarty Pants Patches.
Now I have a question, are these large ones the BC18 Armour Meats patches list in the ACC and on Todd's
web site? I have no information on the Armour Meats set.

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Only the "Howdy Stranger", "Gun Smoke Ranch" and "This Space For Rent" have Smarty Pants
Patches on the back, the others are blank backed.

Ken,
Yes, the backs are blank. I think Chuck and I used your input for the Armour info in the database so now we are unsure. Another possibility is that large blue patches may have come in a larger box of cereal while the smaller ones came in smaller boxes. Can anyone one else help with more info?

More mess I've gotten into. ARGH!!!! WHY? WHY!????
These are really BIG cards! Sorta Donruss like ( elvis,truckin,kiss etc)
[linked image]


Expect to see some or all of these on B/S/T or web since they are soooo new...generally not my gig. I need to see my doctor.

I had targeted these in moments of shear boredom looking at several million yogioh,pokemon and benchwarmer cards.

Now, I've got to finish these off...fill the holes.

Great pickup Jerry.............I'm up to about 1/2 that set. Seems like they don't come up as often as they used to either. Great even condition.

Charlie, you were BORED looking at Benchwarmer cards? I mean, I don't collect them myself... but if you were that bored, clearly you were only looking at the BACKS of the cards!

Picked up some tougher T400+ "Tobacco War" Types (perhaps the most un-appreciated portion of the T-N card spectrum)

T456:

T452:

T460 (I think-- I've never seen one before and matched the WTI description):

Rhett - I'm not much of a tobacco guy, but those are some good looking cards. Thanks for sharing. - Jack J.

there were quite a few interesting T400+ sets

July 8 2015, 2:21 AM 

I don't think they're underappreciated - it's at least in part that they are in a couple of kinds of limbo - they were primarily American cards issued overseas and they are T cards that are chronologically mainly N cards issued only in part in the T period overseas. They are betwixt and between...........
1)The American collector would have to rely primarily on getting cards from the British market - more easily done now in the cybernet era but difficult early on and not that much easier now.
2) The category contains many images and cards that were already in use in the US market.
3) Not sure of the production numbers but it covered a much smaller timeframe and the development and subsequent assimilation of American brands into the different foreign markets would have been a somewhat slow process so I would think all the numbers to be low.
Most confusing to me is determining the country of origin for some of the advertising and signage that was produced in conjunction with the tobacco war era. It's obvious when words like "packet" are used - but I've encountered quite a few other cases where the item is likely a BAT type item - but there's no way to know for sure from the item itself. A large Ginter store card showing the flag series was recently shown here in a thread. It's unlike any known examples and precipitated by Rhett's post - I'm leaning toward it being such a BAT example. It was found in Australia I believe by Paul Fraiser if anyone can find the post.

Clarification

July 8 2015, 2:46 AM 

Jason: When I'm looking,searching,surfing, picking .. I tend to look at almost everything. Example: the last few Sports auction catalogs I got in..Look at them cover to cover. The only thing I skip are Signed balls and cleats...have zero interest.

when online ( mostly da bay) I surf, scroll and toil for hours. The last few years I get "bored" very quickly not finding any cards that interest me...at the same time I see 76 billion pixels of Magic the gAthering,yugioh,pokemon AND benchwarmers or some equivalent.(ugh,sigh) eventually even the female form has NO effect..as you just get zombified by all of the Clutter. (new shiny stuff) and then you impulsively buy something like Rock star cards just to feel like time has not been wasted.

I've been interested in these 2 sets before...just not motivated. I decided to take the plunge. YES...out of sheer boredom!

I think I speak for most boardmembers here: If ebay would just create completely different sections for most of these. For example..using benchwarmers,,, like
" NON COLLECTIBLES- TRADING CARDS-WORTHLESS-NEW SHINY STUFF- GIRLS "
or
"HUMANS-TRADING CARDS-FEMALE "


I'd be very happy and they(ebay) would be quite Correct! (smirk)

Thanks for the laugh though. Gotta laugh or you'll cry.


BTW..I Like a couple of your Mock up, art pieces ..Pretty cool overlay on the Way out wheels card...ah..those were the days!
Anybody here remember letraset?? (grin)


edited to compliment your pick ups

Rhett.........

July 8 2015, 8:21 AM 

Rhett..........love the T400-T499 cards.........I have a couple of those Bonanza's but didn't know they were T460's. I have some I'll try to post pictures of. Fantastic pickups. I sold my T400-T499 collection last year but kept my types from that range.
