I have a few more things coming in, but I'll start the month off. I'm not sure where all these R141s are coming from, but I'm very happy to have my set complete. I scanned against a black background in case Dan wanted to replace the gallery image for the Welsh Guard.

Not a bad start to the month at all since I never really envisioned that I'd ever complete this set a year or two ago.

Daniel, nice pick-up. I still need the "Italian Black Shirt" to complete my R141 set, if anyone has an extra.

I got around to scanning a few late January and early Feb pick-ups...

1.) A tough trio of N60's, including perhaps the first photographic card of an athlete? From my estimate the N60 is a 1880-1881 or so issue...

2.) More C52's (these are SOOO much tougher than T218's). I am down to only 11 needed for the 109 card set

3.) Nice Hodge-Podge of types and interesting cards

4.) Nice lot of W585 cards

Rhett -

Nice group of pick-ups. I'm curious about what you've labelled as W585 - a set which I am not familiar, but notice that they look similar to several E and T issues. Do these have blank-backs? What kind/thickness of stock are they printed on and what are the card dimensions? Can you provide a checklist, or a start to one? .....and finally, can you post or send me a 300 dpi of your favorite, so that I can create a future NSB listing (my e-mail is nscards@comcast.net).

Thanks, Chris

W585 is essentially a blank backed version of the E123 set, similar to the W575-1 being a blank backed version of the E121 American Caramel baseball card set. The ones above mirror the E123 Series of 120 set and these are all on pretty thin paper, there are also W585's that mirror the E123 series If 80 as well but can be found on thicker stock.

An interesting side note is that I have noticed there are actually 2 slightly different backs for the E123 Series of 80 set, the main difference being the words that begin the last line of text in the opening paragraph on the back.

sweet looking ginter trio!! Think I still don't have an N60 after trading my only one but have to check. So you think the A&G issue precedes the BTA athletes?

The N60 set probably doesn't predate the BTA set as the same image is used as the artwork for the N344 set for Hanlan. I would surmise they were made about the same time. I like the photographic nature of N60 a little better, but I still love the N344's.

I have always assumed the N344 set was an 1880-1881 or so issue as there were some really well publicized races between Hanlan and Courtney in between 1878 early 1880 and they were the two Oarsmen featured as they were battling each other to be champion between that time period.

The Scanlens wrapper and card from 1982 is pretty far out of the era that I collect, but they tie directly to the 1959 Wacky Plaks that I do remember from when I was a kid.

The art on these Brooksie cards might give me nightmares, but I like them anyway.

These are interesting. The art looks pretty early. They are numbered on the back (#1 & #2), anyone have others?

Rhett and Chris, Marty Krim is the back expert on E123 as far as I know. I believe that there are at least three different back variations. Maybe Marty can post here when he has a chance.

Rhett, huge hauls two months in a row!, you must need an addition to the house by now happy.gif

I've been focused on collecting pre-ATC merger redemption coupons and now cigarette packs. I like to collect all things Goodwin & Co. as well as the manufacturers that competed against them circa 1886-1890. The following packs are courtesy Joe L. (eBay ID 419zanzibar69) & Jon Canfield, thank you both! These join several other Goodwin & SF Hess packs.

The search for pre-ATC merger coupons and packs of all types continue.

Todd - Love the "Decalcomania" Tip-Top Bread cards. A little searching on the web shows that Meyercord began doing the German originated process here in the U.S.A. around 1893, and quickly built a profitable business. Obviously, Decal is the short version of Decalcomania. I don't know when your cards were made, but they are very cool. They do look 1930's. - Jack J.

Hey Henry, obsessive compulsive?, not me happy.gif

I've noted not only the different crops, but even within a given crop there are many variations (you may have a better handle on this than I). The "Crop of 1885" for example has at least 3 variations. I'm beginning to wonder if they purposely made small changes between every print run (every 100,000 or 1,000,000 boxes) on purpose.

Here are three "Crop of 1885" variations all with tax stamp overprints from 1888.

Feb 14 1888 - 1st line art variation right of "Crop of 1885", 1st design at top of pack, no box manufacturer listed on slide and shell

June 26 1888 - 2nd line art variation right of "Crop of 1885", 2nd design at top of pack, no box manufacturer listed on slide and shell

Dec 18 1888 - 2nd line art variation right of "Crop of 1885", 3rd design at top of pack, Munson & Co. box maker on both slide and shell

I've only listed some of the changes between these three packs, there are others upon close examination.

I wish there were more 19th century pack survivors to better document the variations, many are lost to time.

Larry,
Even "collector grade" Mars Attacks cards look cool! That #21 looks like it went through an actual Martian invasion - sweet!

Lots of great stuff in this thread. I love those N60's, Rhett.

I was able to rescue 3 N127 Sea Captains who had been shipwrecked off the UK for 125 years.

Nice sea captains Bill.......that's a set I need to put to bed. I have about 12-14 of the 25 and just keep putting it on the back burner. I did the N124 Candidate set and I'm about 70% done on the N114 Generals. There's just too much out there to collect. Glad to see you posting some!
