Default w575-2's ?

Posted By: leon

Thanks for the clarifation but according to the Grandfather of Card Collecting, Jefferson Burdick, you are wrong. He classified the latter W's (W500-W644) as Trading or Strip Cards and gave the designation of W500 to any that aren't classified. He did mention that due to their blank backs the identification was far from complete (as of 1960). I think we would classify some differently today but I go by the ACC about 98% of the time.... Thanks for chiming in though...it is appreciated ...

This question is only marginally related, but does anyone know whether the W575-1s were handcut or machine cut? Were they distributed by the same company as the 575-2s?

Default W575 Schedule Cards

Were the W575-2 Schedule Cards issued in the year of the schedule (1923 or 1924) or are they a more recent issue?

Love of the Game has a 1924 Detroit Tiger Schedule Card for sale while the schedule card in the above thread is a 1923 Detroit Tiger Schedule Card.

Thanks

I am not sure I have heard of thicker and thinner versions of the W575-2 series? There is the one shown above that was attached (or uncut) from another but that is all.
Welcome to the forum and fyi, you should put your request in the BST area where those cards would be listed. I have sold some over there in the past. Happy collecting.

When I bought a group of 5 a while ago from an old find (new to hobby) I think I had 2/3, or 3/2 of slightly wider cut and slightly narrower, I forget which were which. All factory cut.

I think there were 2 things being questioned but not sure. One question is about the card stock, which to me is the thickness of the stock. And the other has to do with the width of the card from side to side. I could understand wider cards but also on different paper stock? I don't know of too many series which were intentionally printed on different stock. Maybe I misunderstood?
Also, to answer a 12 yrs old question above, we now know the W575-1s were delivered, at least by one distributor, in a pack of 20 and not as strips. For newer members they can see below (older members have seen these.)
My guess on the W575-1s is; they were distributed by many different companies.
