Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>Am wondering if I violated a Board rule by asking this question or posting a link to the EBay Board. It is the only post on the page w/out a reply.<br /><br />I'm an infrequent poster but a long time Board reader & don't want to do wrong!<br /><br />If so, please advise & delete.

Posted By: <b>RC Mckenzie</b><p>Fred, I used to ask questions that no one had the answer to, and got few responses so, I started asking easier questions... I can't help you on that card. I agree from the other board that it might be 30's 40's though. But, that kinda stuff is way out of line with what I know about. regards<br /><br /><br />edit my guess to 50's\\<br /><br />2nd edit to guess 1975

Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>Thanks RC.<br /><br />Funny thing is, I figured it would be TOO EASY once anyone saw the pic, but maybe not!!<br /><br />Now I'm more curious as to whence it came--or what it is!

Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>Thanks Dan--<br /><br />Can you direct me to which '75 set? <br /><br />I went thru the SCD Bible & didn't see any w/ the copy "Old Time Ballplayers" at the top. Of course some of them aren't pictured.<br /><br />Would like to pin it down!<br />

Posted By: <b>fkw</b><p>I saw the post on eBay but couldnt answer it. If it is a TCMA it is one not listed in catalogs. TCMA does use the "Pct." on a couple of its 1970s era issues.<br /><br />But I also did cut out everything post 1980 in my book.

Posted By: <b>dan mckee</b><p>I may be off on the year! Damnit I do make mistakes! The grading services should hire me! But I have that card here somewhere in my TCMA toilet paper.

Posted By: <b>Bruce Babcock</b><p>The image is from the M101-2 set. Below is info from the Old Cardboard site.<br /><br />Year(s) Published: 1909-13<br />ACC Designation: M101-2<br />Set Name: Sporting News Supplements<br />Card Size (inches): 8 x 10<br />Number of Cards in Set: 100<br />Est. Value (common; VG): $16<br /><br /> Set Summary<br /><br /> # Second major supplement series issued by The Sporting News<br /> # Borderless eight-by-ten-inch images printed on heavy paper<br /> # Vast majority of the M101-2 cards were blank-backed<br /> # Promotion offered with $2 annual subscription <br /><br />This card is from a modern issue reprinting the same pose. I'm not familiar enough with TCMA to know for sure if it is TCMA or someone else.

Posted By: <b>Rich Klein</b><p>This looks like a 1950's-60's card. I'm pretty sure I've seen a type of these or 2.<br /><br />Regards<br />Rich
