Doug, Since I don't collect pre-war cards, I was unaware of this one; however, I was aware of the good portrait of Mr. Wood, from whence this card was made. Just to say it is a genuine beauty, sir. I became an admirer of Smoky Joe upon reading THE GLORY OF THEIR TIMES, one of my Christmas presents in 1966, I believe.

From my experience, and I was just thinking about this the other day, to acquire most of my most cherished cards, I had to pay more, sometimes substantially more money, than the going or book price. Were they were it?

YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! For that matter, I still own most of them.

You did well, sir. Heartiest congratulations from a fellow Hoosier.
