We don't really talk about too many Canadian pre-war baseball cards so I figure a thread to at least show a few would be nice.....And a shout out to our northern brethren, we love ya'll. (we just don't care for the shipping to your country)

Here is an FC59 Honey Boy to get started...

The only CDN pre-war baseball I collect are C46s...not really working on the set, but have a few I like:

Blair,

Your C46 Phelps is the nicest C46 I have ever seen. Tough to find a nicer one I'm sure!

Mr. Burns once gave Homer this Joe DiMaggio RC (1936 World Wide Gum #51) instead of $5 for Christmas. It's a kick to see The Simpsons get a detail like this correct, even if they changed the number slightly.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks! Ahhh...only now just clued in that he was a catcher - your area of great expertise!

With C46 cards, I tend to go for them if they are in real nice grades. If I can grab 7s, 7.5s or 8s for a fair price I usually jump. Don't see many 8s though! :eek:

Cheers,
Blair

Not mine (although the card at the very top of my want list).

1939 v351 Canadian Ted Williams, the TOUGHEST of all the Ted rookie cards. Card is very similar to the 1939 Goudey R303-A except smaller.


Editted: Just looked at my Ted want list and the second card is also Canadian (although not pre-war), the 1954 Topps Canadian Ted Williams #1, gray back. DARN YOU CANADA!

Brent,
Send me your address. I will come for a visit during harvest season.

You can even have any purchases shipped to my house and I will bring them over the border, saving $$$$$$ on Canadian shipping costs. Least I could do.

Sounds great Dave, I'll have the poutine ready for you!
All joking aside, I have seen a couple Williams gray backs at dealers here, but they were only low to mid grade examples. I'll keep my eyes open for you.

Have a great New Years eve!

Hey Leon, great cards! Especially the Peggy Popcorn. That's a great find story, (if you'd like to elaborate I'd love to hear it) Winnipeg being my hometown. A number of regionals (mostly hockey) came out of the city in the 20's, including the Holland Creameries Senators. Thanks for sharing those.

Wow Val, great cards! 👏👏👏 I'm speechless! I'd love to know where and how those were acquired. I find it very interesting that a regional like this was only available in Winnipeg when issued, yet literally none - as far as I know, are found in the city anymore.

ValKehl

Brent, thanks for the kind words. Actually I have had all of the Holland Creameries, except for the SP Peckinpaugh card, for many years One of my biggest hobby regrets was not buying what I think is the only known Peckinpaugh many years ago, because I thought the price was too high! Although most of my Hollands are in P-F condition, I was so glad I already had them when I fairly recently began a new collecting focus - cards of all the Wash. Senators who were on their 1924 championship team - as far as I know, the Holland cards are the only known cards of two players, Ralph Miller & Ernest (Mule) Shirley, and among the few known cards of a few other players.

I can readily tell you where and how I acquired everything in my collection that I acquired since the beginning of 2007. For everything prior to this (including my Hollands), I have a big box full of receipts, cancelled checks, notes, etc. that I have been intending for years to sort and organize. And, I have an Alzheimer's-like memory. Hence, I can't tell you where and how I got my Hollands, except to say I didn't acquire them all one at a time - I acquired at least one sizable group somewhere, probably in an auction.

Hey Mike, not sure if you're being tongue in cheek, but that "foreign language" you're unaware of, is French.

...Frank Reiber is found more often on 1934 and 1935 Detroit Tigers team photos than on his own cards. Filled in for Mickey Cochrane when he was needed. Tigers won the World Series in 1934 so Reiber's timing in the Majors was excellent.

I purchased a group of about 100 (mostly non-sports) cards from an eBay seller in Winnipeg back in 2005. They included a Holland Creameries Zahniser. Maybe that was the last one to leave the city.

Hey Glenn, that was a nice find! For all the years I've looked in Winnipeg, attended shows, garage sales, flea markets, etc. I've never found even one regional card that was produced here, and stayed in the city. So you just might have got the last HC card. I'll keep searching though!

Nice Foxx Leon 1937 OPC is one of my favorite issues of the 30's. But the 1936 WWG has also held a place in my heart because it had both Gehrig and DiMaggio in the set. If you turn DiMaggio over has his nickname listed as "Deadpan Joe" which matches the photo perfectly. Great thread on vacation or would contribute.
