very cool, the first thing I noticed is both photos are in the same room and probably taken the same day, as Gabby is wearing the same suit and tie. Also like the memorabilia under the glass on table. Im sure that room had this type of stuff on all the walls...

Default WIL - St. Louis

Hi Andrew - Yes, WIL is located in St. Louis... (Since 1925)
Leon - This thread was revived from my original August post after returning from the National...

The Drum theory is an interesting one... Do you suppose the lot will go higher as a result ? Perhaps, the original owner moved to St. Louis and is from some other part of the country or the original owner of the frames, sold the frames in the 30's or 40's and they made their way there... I am guessing the original owner worked for WIL in Station management. (Knowing the origin would really nail it down. Perhaps Huggins could indulge us with a little more information about how the consignor came by the picture frames!?)

Jeremy I didn't read the OP very well. I used to live in the STL area growing up and WIL fm 92.3 was the station I listen to the most. They are all country music and broadcast the cards games live when in town. Just a guess but I am going to say those cards originated in the area. STL has always been a hot bed for small finds. A few yrs back I made several trips to there from KC to buy cards. Back in the 30's I am sure those cards were very abundant and cheap so making something like that would have been very cheap. You could smoke in the buildings then so just a few yrs of donations or saving would have made that a very easy feat to accomplish if made before then in the teens. Still a very neat item and I do hope some are drums.

Does anyone know if the cards FS in the collage are confirmed for drum backs??

Who is between Taylor and Ford at the bottom left of the top photo collage in the initial post? I can't tell. Thanks.
