Default Very OT, but would appreciate some info...

Hello everyone -- forgot my password, guessed too many times, got locked out, and had to create a brandy new login. [This is the login formerly known as josepheenella]. I'm sorry for the off topic post -- I recently picked up a fun old card, but I can't find any information on it, and am hoping that someone might recognize it. It reminds me of the 1888 R&S Artistic Series die-cuts (in its style of drawing/illustration, and especially the coloring of the grassy "base" that the figures are standing on.) But it's obviously not a baseball themed card -- and I've never seen any non-baseball cards in the R&S series. Anyone have any clue at all what this is? Thanks very much -- again, sorry for the OT question!

They are Victorian scraps. Late 1800s scraps were largely embossed punchouts intended to be put into albums or otherwise decorate things. Scraps include all sorts of subjects, including angels, animals, flowers, snails, birds, etc. They were popularly collected by kids in the later 1800s.

The baesball R & Series and 'Scrapps' are examples of scraps.

Hiya Gil...

We deal with more W517's than most anyone? It might be true that we have a larger number of graded examples for sale than others (and a complete graded set in our 'keeper' collection). But seriously, now -- we can't possibly consider ourselves "experts" in the W517's (or any other issue, for that matter). Our accumulated knowledge is roughly the same as other collectors -- we know a little about some things, a bit more about others, and find ourselves consulting with the "experts" and the price guides for still others. So we can't tell you a thing about the origins of the W517's (at least nothing more illuminating than what everyone else knows).

David -- thank you for your response. We thought it would be worthwhile to see if anyone would recognize it as being part of a specific, recognizable sports series (like the head & shoulders Scrapps and the R&S Artistic Series). At least we can stop driving ourselves crazy trying to identify the darned thing.
