Default Odd markings

Posted By: Frank Wakefield

I live in Franklin, Ky.

Oddly enough, my fascination with railroading, model and real; as well as my philatelic interests, all overlap with a passion for old baseball cards.

With these 2 cards, we can see that the southern league card was in the southwestern most part of North Carolina at the very end of 1909 (assuming the cancellation was dated correctly), and that the Piedmont 350 is from further North, nearer to the major league cities.

Just curious. You knew about Andrews, N.C., which is about as big as a minute.
I'll have to look you up next Sept. We're planning a trip to Louisville to see my son particpate in the Iron Man (I'm getting a bit winded, now).
Always learning something new here. As a college professor I'm embarrassed to say I had to look up "philatelic." (But now I can use it in class.)
I've never ridden on a train (subway plenty, not the same) ... but my wife, as a 13-year-old, caught the train in High Point, N.C., transferred from Grand Central to Penn Station, and continued to Connecticut... alone. Mid '50s, though, not early 1900s, so she says . So, yes, it was common for kids to take the train by themselves back in the day. Wish they would have found something other than tobacco cards to stamp. Thanks for the insight. The Norfolk-Southern line ran (still runs) behind my childhood home. A group of us would often gather at the tracks and when the train came by, the guys in the engine car would toss us candy. What a thrill.

P.S. Frank, I apologize for bidding against you on the T210s.

Thanks Frank - the card I scanned was of minor-leaguer Moran for Providence. A beautiful card that graded an SGC 10 because of the stamp.
