Default Searching for my grandfather's baseball card

My grandfather, Wally Kimmick, played in the major league between 1919 to 1926 for St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Philadelphia. I'm trying to find his baseball card. I'm told he had a 1924 Zeenut card and a 1929 Zeenut card. I've been looking for years and was hoping someone in this forum might be able to help me. My 88 year old mother (Wally's daughter) has never seen his baseball card so it would be amazing for my family to find one. Thank-you!

I did a quick google search and found this image. I am not a zeenuts collector so I will let others comment but I think it's dang cool that your grandfather played Major League Baseball. Hopefully someone has a card of your grandfather that they will be willing to donate to the family or sell you.

There are a few listings on Ebay team photos where he is clearly identified.

According to VCP and the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, your grandfather's two Zeenut cards were issued in 1924 & 1927: http://www.vintagecardprices.com/bas...multi_player=1

Val is correct, 1924 and 1927 were the two sets that issued Kimmick cards. Both sets are relatively common (with the 1927 being a little more plentiful), but sometimes tracking down a particular player can be tricky. Your best bet is longtime PCL dealer Mark MaCrae, who always has a great supply of Zeenut cards.
