Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Any ideas regarding the origin of this photo? It is 8" x 10", and is credited to Kuenzel of the Detroit News. <br /><br /> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1209933212.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Frank Rose</b><p>John: The Dutch Clark photo you pictured was offered as a free supplement in the Detroit News, I believe on a Sunday. The piece sells for up to $30, but I believe it to be undervalued. The same photo image was used in other trading cards and similar genres as well for Clark.

Posted By: <b>mikemckee</b><p>I think the estimate may be a bit low but that is just my opinion. I had a group of 5 of them at one time which came from Ace Gatowski's estate. The Dups sold from 50 to 100 based on condition and timing.<br /><br />I also remember a postcard from the newspaper announcing the issue along with the date of the insert being included. I did not bid on that lot but printed it out and will try to find it.<br /><br />Take care,<br /><br />Mike<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>My guess was that the insert was issued somewhere between 1936 to 1938. I have the other as well; it seems to be easier to acquire.<br /><br /> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1210029268.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>I bid on that top picture as well - but was it really a photo or was it a half-tone? It looks like the same picture that is on the 1938 Diamond Matchcover - I have it on my website at <a href="http://pages.prodigy.net/revmoran/images/fbmb3.htm" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://pages.prodigy.net/revmoran/images/fbmb3.htm</a><br /><br />I think it's one of the better looking matchcovers, along with the Glenn Presnell. Handsome group of fellows!

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Another Clark supplement (the running pose) w/postcard ended last evening. According to the selller the postcard was postmarked Aug 1938. This is useful in clarifying the date of issue.<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=260268868731&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=016" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=260268868731&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=016</a>
