Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>Casey, What is that card that you just picked up? I have never seen one like it.

Posted By: <b>Casey</b><p>I guess I should have clarified more, it is a postcard. Like others, I collect postcards because of the lack of pre 1930's cards available. Anyway, in my time collecting I had not seen this one before. It is kinda cool, and was cheap!

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Really neat Casey. Is the back postmarked? Any generic team affiliation?

Posted By: <b>Casey</b><p>The card is unused, so no postmark. It does have a couple of glue spots (unmentioned in the auction). As far as I team reference, nothing. Unless you want to count blue as a reference to Yale!<br /><br />Anyway, it is a divided back from the "Anglo Pastelle Series". It is titled "Near the Line" Again, I don't think it is too special but it is new to me and my collection.<br /><br />What is everyone else buying?

Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>Ok, even these are prewar and not cards, here are some of my October football pickups.<br /><br />First is an 1891 Trinity Football CDV photo - I love the notation on back with a player giving the photo to his girlfriend.<br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/TrinityCDV.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/TrinityCDVback.jpg"><br /><br /><br />Next, is an 1891 Harvard Springfield football game button. The button/pin is cloth covered and measures a little over an inch in diamter<br /><br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/Harvard1891pin.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Rhett Yeakley</b><p>If anybody has more information on these I would appreciate it. Both postmarked 1951 from Dallas, Texas. The Rote has "Laughesd" logo on front while the Walker doesn't but has a "Laughead Studio, 6411 Hillcrest, Dallas" return address on back. Thought they were neat items. Both autographed as well.<br />-Rhett<br /><img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/smupcwalker.JPG"> <img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/smupcrote.JPG">
