Need Help Identifying a Strip Card
2 Attachment(s)
Anyone ever seen one of these or know what it is? I believe it is probably from around 1928 based on the players pictured.

Not sure I have seen that before. What kind of paper stock is it on? Can you provide any other info or provenance? Anytime I see something I haven't seen before, I try to get the backstory of where it came from. Sometimes it helps lead to an id too.

It's on a fairly heavy cardboard stock similar to a baseball card. It actually came from the family of Jim Bottomley.

I wonder if this could be considered a strip issue (or even a card issue) as the the card widths are different, which I don't remember seeing before.

Looks like the bottom of a poster or a box top.

Seems like it would be from 1929, as that was Southworth's first year as manager and Howley's last in St. Louis. Because both St. Louis managers are shown it may have come from that area.

I just measured it and the right side is 1/16" shorter than the left side, so I think it was likely hand cut along the top edge. Left side is 3 3/8" high and right side is 3 5/16" high. Length is 13 3/4" and is consistent at top and bottom edge. So, I think it was hand cut along top, but the left, right and bottom appear to be a factory cut. Also, it's got that number "60" at the bottom, which almost appears to be a page #, but that doesn't seem to make a lot of sense based on the heavy cardboard stock. Attached is a close up of the logo at the bottom.

The 60 at bottom would make me think this is out of a book of some sort; page number? Love that it includes Bobby Jones.

The 60 identifies the print shop that printed it.
