I would love to hear from you guys/gals who know of anything that pre-dates what I have listed. Scans would be really fantastic but a simple description of the item would be great also.

Winfield has a Team Issue item from Dean's Photo Service in 1973.

I believe the Dean's issue would be considered a photo instead of a card? Phil has a great site about the earliest collectibles, and he does have the Dean's issue listed already.

Phil, what was the second card (not collectible) of John McGraw (and Cy Young)

I'd question the use of the '72 Puerto Rican League sticker for Schmidt. For one, it's a sticker. For two, he's in a PR league uniform..

I'd also question the use of the '73-80 TCMA ATG Postcards for Weiss and MacPhail. Well, maybe not completely for MacPhail. But considering MacPhail was a Series 6 guy('80 maybe?), I'd go out on a limb on the possibility that the Dexter Press may predate it, or at the very least in the same year.. Weiss was series 5. I'd probably go out on the same limb on the possibility that the '76 Shakey's predates it... Again, I'm not all that familiar with the exact release years of the series.

I'd maybe also put some thought into maybe bypassing anything with 1 known example. Mostly because there is really not enough known about them to ascertain their exact origins as possibly prototypes of unreleased issues. Also, they're completely unattainable.

David makes a good point about those with only one known example..

Maybe instead of bypassing them, you could keep the 1 known example issues with an asterisk, and then also include the next known sports card?

The 1973 Issue was given away the same way the 1978 Family Fun Center card of Ozzie Smith was at the stadium...so maybe you can't consider that Ozzie card his rookie (although I believe it is). Just because the 1973 Winfield card does not have stats or writing on the back, does not make it not a card. It is just a larger card on thin paper stock. There are plenty of blank-backed, thin paper-stock cards out there. I would consider the 1973 Winfield his true rookie card...but that is just my opinion.

As we've discussed before, there is significant evidence to indicate that the W560 issue was actually released in years subsequent to 1927, that evidence being its inlikely player selection if 1927 had truly been the year of issue. That would leave true rookies of Grove and Foxx to the '26-'29 Exhbits sets, or at least put the latter on a probable par with the former. With the exact date of issue unascertainable for some cards, which is to be deemed "the" rookie may well lie in the eye of the beholder = owner, in this instance.

Good, thought-provoking thread!

Happy collecting as always,

Larry

Good questions, guys.

I am well aware of the Dean's Winfield but have chosen to not include it as the majority of collectors would not consider it a card although it is definitely a Rookie piece. I have basically done the same thing with all team issued photo packs, etc. if you check a lot of the 1940's Rookie Cards, you will see that.

After the 1-of-a-kind cards, the second McGraw card would be his 1902 W600 and the second Young card would be his 1902 W600.

Regarding the Puerto Rican Schmidt, since it was Winter League (not Minor League) and after his Major League debut, I included it as I have done with many Negro League players on the list. The MacPhail and Weiss cards could go either way, it's tough to say so I am going to leave those choices up to the individual collector.

I did include the Family Fun Ozzie as it has just about all the attributes of a card as compared to the Dean's Winfield photo.

The W560 question is a good one, if a corrected date can be pinpointed, I would go back and revise those necessary entries on the list. Keep in mind, that I have researched the Postcard-Back Exhibits and many could not have been issued earlier than 1928 or 1929 based on the uniform styles pictured.

This evening, I will go back and list second cards for those Rookie Cards which have a single unique example known.

Once again, I appreciate all of the input!

Phil:

Great list! Thank you for putting in the effort and time required to make such a list!

I do have a question: Do you consider the 1921-30 Major League Ball Die-Cuts to be options for your list?

Brad:

I decided to leave theose out, primarily since collectors were the ones responsible for taking the stickers identifying the players and placing them on generic cut-outs. In general, it is an extremely unpopular set so I decided that it would be better left off. I know that it does have a couple of players like Cronin who would definitely pre-date any of their other cards.

I have this photo of Winfield. It is definitely not a card. IMHO

Phil, great list. After a quick review I think it is very close to what I have listed.

Jesse Burkett - there is only one Just So and it is altered. Normally I would consider it his RC, but since there's not even one legitimate copy out there (according to what appears your definition), I would consider the W600 or Ramly his RC.

I would consider most E107's over the W600 as RC's. Although personally I'd prefer to consider the W600's RC (only because they are cheaper and more obtainable) in reality for most of the W600's (?) they were distributed from 1902-11. At least with the E107's you know what year they were produced. For all you know the W600 you have could have been produced in 1911 (many years after the E107).
I know there are a few that you could pin down exactly what year they were produced. For any that could be proven to be distributed prior to the E107 I would be OK considering their cards a players RC.

I really believe you would be the only collector to consider stickers as acceptable rookie cards (Gossage/Schmidt). Aren't stickers, you know, stickers?

I thought I read somewhere that the Rose Co Postcards were not produced in 1908? I'll have to check that out.

I comment more later when I get more time.

Thanks, Dan.

Later today, I am going to add the W600 of Burkett next to the Just So. Although the original card was severely trimmed and then rebacked by a collector, the core of the original card still remains so I am going to keep it on my list.

Regrading the E107's and W600's, exactly as you said, I am only listing W600's as Rookie Cards over E107's if a definitive 1902 issue date for that player has been determined. Otherwise, I have gone with the E107.

According to Kevin Struss, who has done extensive research of the Rose Company postcards as well as the Novelty Cutlery postcards, some Roses were issued in 1908 as well as 1909 so those issue dates are believed to be correct.

On the Puerto Rican League stickers, since they are about the same size as standard cards and have player bios on the back, I have chosen to include them. Out of curiosity one time, I tried to peel the "sticker" from the backing and found it impossible to do without harming the piece. I know that an album was issued in 1972 and some were peeled and stuck in there, which probably worked when the glue was fresh.

Default great list

Hey Phil
That is a great list you put out. You have done a nice job of giving justification to each decision too. That being said, if I were still a rookie card collector, and there were unique rookie cards of some players, I would still count them. It's sort of like saying you completed T206 .....but don't have Wags as he costs too much. If there is a at least "one" of a card, imo, it has to be counted. Now, you could do a caveat and accept the 2nd card, but it would have to have the dreaded asterisk imo..And lastly, I am quite sure there is no absolute definition of what a baseball card is so, if I were doing the list, I would be rather lenient on obscure card-like issues. Some photos can almost be both a card and a photo. Kind of like a photo-card. I have quite a few in my collection as type cards. Good thread!!

Thanks, Leon.

That's exactly what I am going to do later today. I am going to add second cards for those players with uniquely-known Rookie Card examples and clearly identify them as such, leaving it up to the collector's choice, but at least they know where they stand.

The photo-type cards are certainly a gray area and I will have to consider them on a case-by-case basis.

1954 Johnston cookies Hank Aaron is a true rookie card as well. I've read it was released before the Topps. Not sure if that is 100% accurate. Anyone else see anything about it?

Scott:

You are correct about the Johnston card (not sure about the release date being before Topps). I debated whether to include it as it was a regional set but I will go ahead and add it since you brought it up.

Thanks for the list. My only comment is that a sticker isn't a card in my opinion. If it is, what happens after it's peeled and stuck to something else. Is it still a card then?

Phil, BTW ... I don't think anyone could have put a list together that would have less questions, issues as you did. NICE JOB!

I was wondering, why:

Dan Brouthers (1887 Buchner/Old Judge/Gypsy Queen)

but

Cap Anson (1887 Buchner)??? Why not A&G or OJ? I realize that were 88-90 but wouldn't that have been true for Brouthers also?

Still don't agree on the stickers but I guess it could be argued that cards are stickers also if you put glue on their back. I would definitely also list their mainstream issue, but it's your list.

As far as the W600's, are you saying you are only listing them ahead of the E107's if it is certain the card was issued prior to the E107? For example, the player changed teams in 1903 so the W600 had to be from 1902? If that's the case I agree. If the player was on the same team from 1902-11 and the card is listed ahead of the E107 I don't agree since odds are the card was from after 1903. I would at least list both in that example. However, once again, it's your list.

Take care,

Well, the concensus appears to be that the stickers should not count as Rookie Cards and there are only two of them in question so I am going to go with the traditionally accepted Rookie Cards for those two and make the updates now.

Dan:

Regarding your W600's question, the font of print on the cabinet cards was distinctly different for those issued in 1902 as opposed to later versions (I have used Jerry Spillman's OldCardboard article to differentiate them myself). Thus, those which have been positively identified as 1902 have taken precedence over the E107's on my list for those specific players. If anything later was in question, I went with the E107's as their 1903 date is much more definitive.

On Brouthers vs. Anson, the 19th Century experts have informed me that the Allen & Ginters were definitely not an 1887 issue but most likely 1888. I have also been told by the Old Judge experts that there was no Anson N172 card issued in 1887, only 1888. So that is why I have the Buchner as Anson's only Rookie Card from 1887 while Brouthers had three different Rookie Cards which were in fact all issued in 1887.

No, Jeff, no team cards were included. The largest amount of players on any card was the 4-on-1 Exhibits as well as some of the Topps prospect cards of the '60's & '70's.

why not? just curious as to your justification why a card with 4 players would be ok but not one with say 12.

Jeff:

The main reason for my not including team cards is to eliminate the inevitable comparison from people to something like a 1967 Topps New York Mets team card with Nolan Ryan pictured so small that you cannot even make him out. People will agrue that if 12 is okay why not 20 or whatever number happens to be pictured?

In addition, I have been told by collectors many times that they do not count team cards as Rookie Cards as there are numerous pre-war team photo postcards that would then enter the equation.

gotcha. In my opinion, if you can definitively id a player on a team card, then it should count. But that's just my thoughts, I can see your way of thinking too.

How about the 1920 Peggy Popcorn for Dazzy Vance: Link. Not sure if the debate about the dating of the cards or picture on the card was cleared up.

The "stickers are not cards" thing is silly! People get so freaking wierd about the whole "what is a card" thing. It was distributed with the intent of being collected and the stickers are even roughly "traditional card" sized. Such a silly argument...maybe T3's shouldn't be cards because they are roughly the same size as the Dean's card above (both the same size, they depict baseball players, have advertising on them, and were distributed with the intent of being collected by people...how are they different again?). Caramelo Deportivo cards were meant to be stuck into an album so they are basically stickers, too... better take them off the list! Why be so exclusionary? There exists a collectible item of Mike Schmidt that predates his first Topps card so why would it not be on the list because there is some adhesive on the back? There are many items cataloged in the CARD CATALOG that are fairly large (R309-2, T3's, R311, etc.) I don't really understand why today we get so caught up on the little dstails of what a "card" is.

Some would have you believe that if it isn't between the size of T206 and a Topps Tall-Boy than it isn't a "card" (No exhibits, no postcards, no premiums of any kind like R313, R314, etc.). Also it can't be round (no E254, E270, E286, Dixie Lids, etc.). It can't be too small (no Baguer Chocolates, R423, etc.). It can't be a part of a box (no J=K, E271, Orange Borders, Wheaties cards, etc.). It can't have sticky stuff on back (no "stickers", Topps test issues, etc.). It can't be made of anything other than traditional paper (no coins, pins, Salada, Topps Plaks, etc.). It can't be part of a deck of "game" cards (no Tom Barker, Walter Mails, Allegheny, etc.). and this is the first time I've seen it, but now it can't be one-of-a-kind because you know those don't "really" exist do they? (no Allegheny, 1921 Herpolsheimers, etc., etc.).

If you are cool with collecting Only Topps, Bowman, and maybe some T206's then those are great rules BUT if you want to collect the earliest known CARD (insert the most liberal interpretation of "card") then that is a list that would be of some use to the collecting world.

There is a cabinet of Anson from 1874 that depicts him on the Philadelphia club, his second professional team. Unlike a lot of other studio cabinets, this one was from a team photo shoot, as the entire team is depicted in individual cabinets. I think that is a better choice for Anson's rookie card then the Buchner Gold Coin, which besides being issued late in his career, depicts an image more generic in nature than an actual depiction of Anson.

EDITED to add that while there is one known copy of the Anson card, some of the other cards from the "set" have more than one known copy. The Anson image is well known, being depicted on a popular composite woodcut of the 1874 Philadephia team.

Corey:

Thanks for the input on Anson. I made a conscious decision not to include photography studio cabinets or cdv's of individual players as they were most likely produced for the players themselves and not meant to be distributed or produced in any quantities nationally as cards would have been. There are many 19th Century players that fall into this category including Young, Keeler, Thompson, Wright, etc. and many of them also had other teammates produced at the same time like Anson.

Of course, each collector can decide to go with the earlier studio card or cdv and that might very well make for a more interesting collection (personally I am a big fan of going that route).

Not for me. I'd prefer to have the players name spelled correctly and of course the player on the card be that of the player . I have this card (actually two of them) but still call his 33 Goudey his RC.

Phil - Thanks for all of the effort. I really enjoyed looking over the list.

FYI, The W600 cabinet card of Mathewson was not made available by The Sporting Life until January 31, 1903.

Phil,

Thanks for the response and thanks too for the effort to compile such a list. I understand the rationale for your decision, and there is certainly something to be said for compiling a list based on a more public distribution, which gives collectors a more realistic shot of acquiring the cards.

Gary:

Very good inquiry on the Vance card. I have gone back and reviewed the Net 54 thread that you provided the link to. There is a lot of uncertainty there with regards to year of issue, Major or Minor League, etc. so I am going to hold off on including that one unless it becomes more definitively catalogued in the future.

Rabbit Maranville (1912 Boston Daily American Postcards)
I don't believe this card produced in 1912, it doesn't seem possible (see the N54 thread).

Fred Lindstrom (1925-31 W590)
I have this card (thanks to you). However, since it was issued over six years how do I know the card I have was issued before his 1926 Exhibits?

Lefty Gomez (1932 US Caramel)
I thought US Caramel cards were issued in 1933 (can't remember where I read that, could be wrong)

Kid Nichols (1889 Old Judge)
Isn't this his Pre-rookie card? Although because his 1st major league card is six years away I may also agree calling this card is RC.

Rogers Hornsby (1917 Boston Store/Collins McCarthy/Standard Biscuit)
So glad you didn't go with the W-UNC card as his RC. Nice job.

Once again, great job!

Thanks

Wouldn't the 1939 Michigan Sportservice be considered Newhouser's rookie?

It has been pretty reliably determined that the Michigan Newhouser does not exist although it is checklisted in the SCBC. No one has ever seen one.

More good insight, Dan.

The date of issue of the Maranville postcard has been questioned before. The uniform style pictured is 1912 but could have been issued up to 1914 (Boston's championship season). This would still make it a Rookie Card but would also open the door for his Cracker Jack and Polo Grounds cards as well. I have chosen to go with the postcard for now.

Regarding Lindstrom, there really is no way of pinning down the exact year of issue so I have gone with the premise that it could have been 1925, thus the Rookie Card status.

For Nichols, although he is pictured in a Minor League uniform, I have chosen to include his Old Judge card because, by and large, it was a Major League card issue.

On Gomez, I have also heard that the US Caramels were likely a 1933 issue, not sure on that one. If so, then his '33 Goudey would also qualify for Rookie Card status.

Thanks for the input. Yes, Weil Baking would qualify as well. Similar to the M101-5/4's with the different advertising backs, I just listed the more common advertising rather than every one. I have now gone back and added the Weil Baking version as well.

Phil,

I have to mention one more time, you can't possible have this card as Ferrell's only RC since he's not even on the card, could you?

Rick Ferrell (1931-32 4-on-1 Exhibits)

Why not at least offer his 33 Goudey as a 2nd card?

BTW, I'm not objecting because I don't have the Exhibits card just because it doesn't seem right.

I was thinking about a hunger strike until you made the change, but I guess I'll let it go after this final objection!

Thanks

You're including W600s, stickers and cabinets, but not M101-1s?
