Default T-206 Southern League Players, Were These Cards of Minor League Players

Posted By: peter chao

I'm not even sure whether the Southern League was considered a minor league back in 1909. My question is whether there were any minor league cards before those included with the T-206?

Peter, the Southern League cards were minor league cards...and yes there are older minor league cards. The N172 Old Judge set is filled with minor league cards.

I never said I was an expert on prewar cards, that is why I posed the question. Your expertise would be appreciated.

Or do you just like to ask questions, just to be noticed?

Do you own, or have you read any of the referrence books that have been discussed on this forum?

Picking brains is nice, but I think that you might find digging for the information more enjoyable. ... then again, in your case, I may be wrong.

I would like nothing better than to spend my entire day reading baseball books but unfortunately I am unable to. It is a perfectly innocent question. I wish I had the time to question the motives of Net54 members.

Peter C.

Edited to add: Actually, the question is not as basic as it looks at first glance. Generally, it is known that Branch Rickey was a pioneer in the use of the farm system as we know it. Did the Southern League have any formal ties with major league teams similiar to what Branch Rickey created?

That's Broderick Crawford's line from an old movie called, "BORN YESTERDAY".

During those years you couldn't use the word "bull sh!t."
So he said to a very young Bill Holden, "Never crap a crapper".

You spend more TIME on this forum than Jeff does.
So what's all this crap about you not having enough TIME to read? .... You're an attorney?

I was joking about being an expert on baseball law, I'm not. It's also unfortunate that many of the references you mentioned are not in general circulation. Also, this may be difficult for you to believe, but not everybody lives and breathes the hobby 24 hours a day.

Now that you know that Old Judges included minor leaguers, how would you go about identifying them if you were given a pile of OJ cards, Peter?

If you do not know the answer to this inquiry, you could ask, or you could read Lipsett's Encyclopedia, or other lesser resources.

But I bet that you know the answer.
