Now the collection stands at an even 200. Also found out through business records that the address was not only a home, but the address of grocery store owned by McCormick's dad and his business partner, whose last name was Howe.
Ed, could it be that the owner of the store stamped them and handed them out as advertising? If they were the kid's, I would expect him just to scribble his name on the back.

Default The name of the store was Howe's Grocery Market

Business records from the county say that Howe had a partner named McCormick, but the partners name was not part of the store name.

Also wouldn't explain the one card that has Howe McCormick as an agent for the Saturday Evening Post, with the same address. No, they belonged to the kid named Howe.

Default Another Tisdel

Same story, same source, but some paper loss and a lot of scrapbook paper on the back ........ yesterday .

With two cards, I now consider myself a Tisdel collector.

Nice story Frank .... i love the history of ownership etc behind card.... like many said, the historical value is better than the money value sometime...

I love to own pedigree card or a card with a special owner or history....

When i bought my T206 Plank i had to choose between 2 T206 Plank card. The fact i had the chance to afford the
L. Carter copy of Eddie Plank had a biggg influence in my choice...

nice story Frank ! thanks for sharing.

It is comforting to know that Eddie P. has found an appreciative home!

I recently posted about my T201 Leifield auto with Burdick provenance here:

I really love learning about the travels of our old cardboard over the past century...

A trade was made between the boys and the new owner thought it appropriate to sign the card as well to document the transfer of ownership.
Frank,

I'm curious. Will you now sign the Waddell card as well to document the transfer of ownership?

If requested by the next owner, I would happily comply. Rest assured that I will ask.

If this was a common practice, I imagine some of these little cards would be quite crowded with sigs.

Default My best story of provenance

is owning a card that was once owned by Burdick, who sold the card to Sir Edward Wharton Tigar (in the 1940s)...and a few decades later, it is now in my humble collection

I would think you would want to sign the back to document the transfer of ownership from Gordon Soutter to you.
