I have come across a stack of cards that are approx. 2 1/2" H x 2 1/4" W although the size varies. The header card reads "Classic Ballcaps of The Negro leagues" and the backs states "The Historic Ball Caps depicted on these cards can be purchased from the Cooperstown Ball Cap Co. Box 1003 Cooperstown, NY 13326". The cards are numbered 113 through 183 and the backs state the team depicted. My questions is are these worth anything, are the players actual Negro Leaguers and when did they come out? I want to sell them but would like to be a bit more versed in the story behind them.
Any info you can supply would be greatly appreciated as well as offers for the group I guess (or I can just list them on the B/S/T).
Thanks,
Tony

Tony,

Hi Tony....you might want to post on the Pre-War side even if it is post-War, since most of the Negro League collectors are over there. Phil G is putting together a collectible guide as well. Here is the link for that discussion:

If he can't answer your question, I am sure Phil will be aware of who can answer it. Good luck.

Tony,

Steve O (39Special) is also a Negro League collector. He posts on the Memorabilia side, but I believe he would be familiar with your cards.

Zach, thanks for the direction. I posted on the prewar side so we'll see I guess. Steve said he doesn't know what they are either.
