Scott, thanks for the reply. I'm still trying to salvage my $15 investment. Even if I could show that this is a cyclist card, it would have a very slim market and probably not more than $100-200 value.

The back says, photo taken Nov. 19 /89... so this looks like it would not fit if N29 are all 1888.

I have a better baseball find (cabinets, not Chickering,) that I will be posting about when they arrive.

There is a good market for i.d'd cyclist photos. I bought one from 1897, of a non-famous cyclist, and paid a pretty penny for it...but I had to have it. The ones of them in their uni's with their bicycle can be pricey.

I used to have a customer who collected tintypes of bicycles, so now I still keep my eyes open for them.

Scott F,

I have seen the N49 cyclist cards sell for around 50-100, so it does look like people buy cards with the bikes pictured.

It's interesting that the N162 Rowe looks nothing like the N29 Rowe. I bought the N29 Rowe card on ebay so I will post a large side by side scan when I get the card. The guy's hair is the same in the N29 drawing as it is in the photo I have. His moustache is different, but maybe he combed it differently in 1889 than 1888.

Default Cool Stuff - Auctioning these

I just picked up a couple of nice chickerings. The backs are great. Can anyone tell me about them? Lots of good info in this thread. These came out of an old bar which a famous 19th century athlete bounced at. I believe maybe they were gifts? Thanks!

Your cards look like the boxer John L Sullivan to me.

Here is one I picked up recently

The baseball one I posted is of General Stafford, who played for Boston in 1898 and 1899.


John L. Sullivan's wikipedia page has the same image shown as the Chickering one on the right that you have. Wikipedia has the photo dated at 1898, but they don't have it sourced.

If you have Adam W.'s 2nd edition boxing guide, look on page 57 and 58.

Page 57 has the same image as the chickering one you have on 2 anonymous cabinets.
