Posted By: <b>Richard Simon</b><p>These measure 1 1/2" x 2 1/8" and have a glossy finish and blank back. Any clues as to what they are?<br />Thanks for any help.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1109433839.JPG"> <br /><br />I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.

Posted By: <b>todd (nolemmings)</b><p>They look to be authentic and period, but I cannot tell for sure. They may be a Toledo Mudhens team issue, although I did not find it catalogued. If period, it would have been from the mid 30-s, as all 4 of those players/manager were on the MudHens during that time. Smoll only played for them in 1936, however, which might pin it down, but it looks like his card has a different typeface/font than the others, so maybe these were issued more than once.<br /><br />Neat looking items. <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>jay behrens</b><p>My guess would be a team issue by the Toledo Mud Hens or a local Toledo store. Just find a roster with those players to find the year.<br /><br />Jay<br><br>I've just reached Upper Lower Class. I am now officially a babe magnet for poor chicks.

Posted By: <b>jay behrens</b><p>Smoll appears to be from the same set. With the dark jacket, his card just seems to look different becuase the name plate stands out more.<br /><br />Jay<br><br>I've just reached Upper Lower Class. I am now officially a babe magnet for poor chicks.

Posted By: <b>Richard Lloyd</b><p>Hi Richard... <br />Nice cards and they look like Mudhens..They are not in the 2005 Krause guide. These appear to be uncataloged.. My main collecting interest is vintage minor league cards... If you are looking to sell I would be interested...they would fit nice in my collection.. <br />Best<br />Dick

Posted By: <b>Richard Simon</b><p>Thanks for your help on these. I did purchase a large, terrific collection of 1930's autographs and these were a part of it. So the 1930's Toledo characterization certainly seems to be the right one.<br /><br />----------------<br><br>I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.
