I can't post pictures on this site any longer. Well probably could, just to lazy to find a host but I own 38 T206's with F.F. Baker stamps on the back. Most here have seen them or know I actively collect them.

I collect T206's. More specificity I collect T206's with the former owners name stamped on the back. F.F. Baker was born Fredrick Frank Baker, January 25th, 1903 and died November 1973 in Richmond, Virginia. It appears he lived in the Richmond area his entire life. He and his family lived at 1318 Mosby. Prior to the 20's it was known as Mechanicville Turnpike but the house number was still 1318. His father owned a grocery store in 1910 and 1920 according to the census data, presumably at the same location. One theory is that Fredrick had easy access to cigarette cards from the customers

Not baseball but I think these are pretty cool. I just received the Gil Nichols a few days ago and have had the Dave Deshler for about a year. To be honest I never got past looking at the Toy Town stamp on the Deshler card to even notice the date or Raymond Dunham's name written on it until today. And I hope John Stevens didn't pay too much for his backwards stamp.

Nothing super special, but I like them .............

T36 -- Mulford (like him because he was a big name in 1909-11 Sav. Vanderbilt Races) -- Burdick

T212-3 -- Wiggs -- Having a senior moment -- Buck Baker / Barker ????

T206 -- EPDG Dooin -- Nelson Tisdel (with probable signature)

T206 -- Cycle Hallman -- Toy Town

T206 -- Doolin "Doolan error card " -- Schulte/front "with nickname and stats" -- Unknown, but way

Fun stuff, Scott

I believe the original owner of this card was French Canadian. It reads "Detroit Tigers Ligue Americaine" in French. This is a very rare Canadian V351-B. Based on who I bought it from, I could be the third or fourth owner of this card.

Default 1928 Star Player Candy cards

I bought my 1928 Star Player Candy cards about 15 years ago from a dealer at a paper show. The guy I bought them from had inherited them from his father who originally bought them as a kid.

For a long time I thought these cards were a regional issue because most of the cards that I knew about were found in the the Midwest. My cards originally came from Michigan.

Thanks to young Melvin, this card survived to end up in my 1924 Senators collection:

Default Bit behind on this, and the post is old ...

The collection is now up to 321, with a total of 47 that exist that I don't have in the collection. 11 of those are in a partial set now at auction from REA, so some of those might be part of the 24 I have already lost track of, but we'll see.

Very fascinating story, first I have seen it. May I ask how you started this quest? And do you have a link to your collection?
