Default Bill Rumler's Zeenut cards

I was wondering if anyone on here would be able to share a good scan of Bill Rumler's Zeenut cards from 1929 and 1930 sets. He played for Hollywood in those years after being allowed back into organized ball after being implicated in the PCL scandal of 1919 (bad year for baseball!). After serving out a long suspension he came roaring back and had 2 monster years with The Shieks batting .386 in '29 and .353 in '30 before sustaining a career ending injury. Rumler always swore he did nothing wrong and it would seem that his being let back at the age of 38 would prove that right.

I want to do an illustration of Rumler but I only found a blurry Zeenut to work from, any help would be much appreciated.

(as a side not I am also looking in vain for a copy of the Sports Collectors Digest article on Rumler in the 9/17/1993 edition)

Here is his toughest Zeenut, the 1920. Unfortunately I haven't collected either of the years you are looking for all that much so I can't help you on the 1929 & 1930.

Thanks Rhett, I've never seen one of those before (I guess that's why you call it his "toughest Zeenut!"

Well, while we're at it, here is his Major League card (E135 Collins-McCarthy)...


Now, I think we are only lacking his 1919 Zeenut for a complete Rumler run.
