Default Horizontal Zeenuts...

Posted By: three25hits

Is there a checklist available for horizontal Zeenuts? Any help would be appreciated.

Default Horizontal Zeenuts...

Posted By: brian p

The makers of Zeenuts, while producing great cards for almost three decades, were not horribly inventive when it came to design. The cards are uniformly standard full body action poses with a vertical orientation. The three exceptions that I know of are the horizontal 1911 card of Halla (I believe it was Halla) that was posted on this site a couple of weeks ago, a horizontal 1914 Cartwright of San Francisco, and the 1919 head and shoulders shot of Fanny Arbuckle pretnding to eat a baseball.

If there are more horizontal shots they are likely to be in either the 1911 or 1912 sets, as they are larger size cards and perhaps more accomodating to squat down pitching and fielding photos.

In the spirit of sharing the knowledge, as mentioned in another thread, here is some additional horizontal Zeenut information I have subsequently received from a very knowledgeable source. There are around a 'handful' of horizontal Zeenuts in the entire run of the issue, and besides the 1911 Halla and the 1914 Cartwright that I mentioned previously, the other few fingers worth of sleepy pose cards will be found in the 1911, 1912, 1913, and 1914 sets. This person was working off memory, so sorry I can't provide specific player information, but at least you have a better idea how unusual this format is within the Zeenut galaxy of 3500+ cards.
