Posted By: Thomas

Anyone know anything about Baseball Trade Cards from A&P Baking Powder? Is there a set, what year are they, and what kind of price range should I expect? Thanks for any information.

Hey Thomas,
Since no one else chimed in I will at least give you an educated guess. I have never heard of A & P Powder Trade cards before but if they are similar to other trade cards, with cartoon like characters, and from the 1870's to 1880's, it is probably in the $35-$100 range. If the caricature has a name of a player on it the value will go up....and if it is of a HOF player it could go up 3-4 times. If the card has a lifelike player on it, with a name, it will be very valuable. I have an H812 Trade card of Mickey Welch that is in the mid 4 figure range....Hope this helps a little. If you could send a pic I could give you a closer (approx)value....good luck and best regards

Many trade cards were distributed with many different advertisements on them. A&P Baking may have nothing to do with the type of trade card.

Thomas, check out Frank's web site and see if anything matches your card, he has a good selection of trade cards: http://hometown.aol.com/kealoha707/tradecards.html

Glen is correct. While some trade cards were directly related to a particular product, most trade cards were sold to stores or other commercial companies who put their individual stamp on the front and/or back of the card. So, for example, an 1878 Forbes Trade Card (common type, Forbes being the printer of the cards) can be found with a 'Joe's Candy Store,' or 'Tammy's Carpets' on it.

In a sense, many (not all) trade cards were like Christmas cards you buy in a box of 50 at the store. The message part of the Chistmas is left blank so the individual can add her message and name.

A&P is usually a "Buffords Sons Litho Co." tradecard (ACC# is H804-3), they are from 1888 and are considered fairly common as far as baseball trade cards go. Compared to most of the cartoon style baseball tradecards the Buffords cards are attractive with fairly realistic full color game action drawings. They usually sell in the $25-$50 range in nice shape. Im not sure exactly how many are in the set, but I believe its 3-4. Frank

The best way to tell is to see whether the company name is a stamping or whether it appears to be part of the original design and printing.
