Default Elmer Chickering Studio Cabinets

I saw this post about a Cabinet Card in the Boston Library...

http://www.net54baseball.com/showpos...7&postcount=34

and I started looking around for more information on Elmer Chickering cabinets. I saw where the SCD list some 1899 approx. 9x10 Boston Beaneater cabinets and some 1900 approx. 4x6 cabinets of uniformed players.

I looked on ebay and saw this Oarsman O'Connor graded by sgc...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/C1888-WILLIA...-/321046393145

I bought one of an anonymous person with the same font as the O'Connor card.

Does anyone recognize this person in the photo? Or does anyone have any addional information on Chickering Studio Cabinets? I have read that Chickering Studios took many photos of celebrities, politicians, and atheletes in the Boston area.

Hi-
Unfortunately, I am fairly certain that is not a baseball player, or anyone famous. There are tens of thousands of Chickering cabinets with similar mounts as he was a prominenent photographer for everyone in the Boston area. There are only hundreds (or less) baseball subjects by him. I could be wrong of course.

Here is my Chickering cabinet of Duffy. Lew Lipsett auctioned off a group of Beaneater imperial cabinets several years ago and this is one of those. Quite possibly one of a kind. At least one other board member has one.

Alan, thanks for the info. I was thinking the Chickering Cabinets had a smaller total population for all subjects. The card I have was only $15 and I was looking to see what the cards looked like in person. They are very expensive looking, high-grade photographs.

Bruce and Scott, thanks for posting your cards. Great cards. Hope some go up for sale at auction soon. I was wondering if the backs of the baseball cards are similar to the O'Connor, or the one I posted , or something different. Thanks

Rob

Scott, how the heck did that happen? Also, if you don;t mind, what was the auction house?

I have had Bailey and Lewis cabinets since Lew originally sold them, picked up the Hickman later. I have had the Lowe for many years as well.

On the auction situation. No need to go over old ground with it. In a nutshell, the auction ended(this was during an experimentation of auction endings that the auction ended at an exact time and if no one else bid you won) Well I placed several bids right at the cut off time, so no one could outbid me, knowing that there was no extension. I bid, was high bidder, received the "you have won" email and called it a night. Unbeknown to me they restarted the auction a few minutes later, "because many people could not get bids in" well I thought that was the purpose of the hard close. Bid or lose! To no avial was I able to persuade them I should be the correct winner, as someone else had bid in the next few minutes after they reopened it and then reclosed it.

Not the biggest deal in the world, we all know I have had enough good fortune and foresight, to write off one bad incident.
