Victoria Louise, Prussian Princess. I think her biggest claim to fame is that her wedding was the last big gathering of the European royals before World War I broke out and the extended family was just never the same again. This is her at, I believe, 17 in 1909, as the honorary colonel of the II Life Hussars. This card hit my primary points for collecting historical images; it has 1) a cool horse and 2) a cool military hat.

**trigger warning**

Historical figures. Great is up to you.

Some group (or person) operating under the name "Fascinating Cards" has put out a couple nonpartisan sets of Congress cards now. I unironically love this; we don't get many history cards and while I'd rather have the Continental Congress, I'll settle for anything of historical significance. I'm not sure it will last, as the people who care enough about government, politics or history to collect Congress cards are the type of people who will mostly be upset over one half of the cards or the other. I ended up getting a whole case for very little and cracked the first box. Maybe the next one will have an AOC Yard Sign Relic or a Lauren Boebert Chrome RC!

The freshmen members elected in 2020 have a "Rookie Card" at top, which I find amusing for some reason. Stock is slightly thin, but quality is surprisingly decent.

There is a 1975 style card from a few years back with all of the "Squad" on it. Awesome thing, honestly.

Well, perhaps she isn't quite a historical figure, but I've been looking for this her likely first card for so long that I am going to post it.

Have you seen any of the "Politicards" playing card sets through the years? I used to pick up the 1971 set when I saw it, when I was going through my oddball non-sports phase years ago.

Not really flattering to any of the subjects in it, but pretty interesting. There's even a Norman Mailer card in it (Joker), I wonder if it's his first card.

They can be had on Ebay pretty cheap.

I’ve got a couple of the sets, 71, 96, and I think 2008. I prefer realistic portrayals of people, but they’re pretty fun and cheap sets to fill in gaps. There is lots of presidential sets but outside the Oval Office, not a whole ton even for non-obscure and long-serving historically significant officials. Good fun to flesh out my history boxes with some of the oddballs and unusuals

Looked a long time for a presentable example of QE2's 1952 Felix Potin.

Two different backs of the tough short printed T70 triple folder, featuring Adams, Franklin, Jefferson and more in a card version of Trumbull's painting.

That's a cool ass card. Didn't know there was a triple folder in that set. Don't think I've ever seen so much text on the back of a tobacco card.

What's the story behind that card, for us uninitiated with that set, if you don't mind...and how much bigger is it then a regular card from that set?

The story is largely a mystery. It's taller than a T202 triple folder. T70 has 25 cards that aren't the easiest but aren't really difficult (gallery is here, it's a set of great images in my opinion, heavily weighted to the Revolution: http://www.moviecard.com/gallery/tcards/t70.html). There are several backs, one of which is a physically smaller card and appears to have never produced the triple folder and so only has 24 cards.

The triple folder card here was certainly short printed. They are pretty rare to even find a separated panel from. It doesn't appear that, being triple the size of a normal card when printed, that it is 1/3 as common as a normal card just because it took up more space on the sheet. They're definitely tougher than that, I would guess they were probably printed on their own sheet to make the folding feature easier in production than mixing with non-folding normal cards. A normal card in the set is the size of one of the panels. So the card folded up could have fit just fine in a pack of cigarettes. It's unclear to me if they were ever issued in packs, or if they were distributed some other way as a kind of premium item.

It's one of those cards I really like independently from its set and wish was a super printed common, because it's a really cool and unique idea and execution. Off memory, I believe it's the only triple folder card from the ATC related sets outside of the T202 classic. I'd like a reprint for daily desk display

Thanks for the explanation. Makes me very curious how it was distributed. Chase card, or maybe even a sample given out to vendors who carried the brand.

Ha, perfect! I don’t think mine is any better. I love this set, any of its 3 renditions. I’ve got one card to go for the 1956 issue, been picking up a lot of the 52’s lately when I see ‘em for a buck or so. Really wish Topps would do a Heritage style history set in this design and ‘bring it back’.

McClellan might have been outmatched by Lee, but he also has a cool Goodwin card. This is the Red Magician parallel, serial numbered out of 14 copies. Need the other 7 now.

For purists who want first cards, even if not the greatest issue, the 1991 Face to Face game is a gold mine..

Perhaps an unlikely place to find the first card of the famous newsman.

Default A Christmas Miracle

Fun story with these. So, I won the full 1937 Coronation set on September 10th. The seller shipped within a couple of days from Australia. Weeks go by and the cards never show up, until November 16th when the seller contacts me to tell me the cards came back to him. After verifying my address, he sends them back out. After a few weeks go by I give up hope of getting the cards for the 2nd time and decide that if they end up with the seller again, I will tell him to relist them. On December 23rd the cards finally arrived, a Christmas miracle.

Bought a full tan back set at a show today after my main local dealer offered me a happy price. Mao is the funniest card in the set, the depiction is so over the top it's hard to take serious. I'm not even sure what the red ape holding Aladdin's sword has to do with the propaganda of Mao here. It's a pretty popular card, probably for the absurdity of it. Usually only beaters go under $50. The yellow lines are regularly recurring in those two spots.

Mao is a similar color to the Wicked Witch, yes? I think the animal is just symbolic of violence and bloody aggression, but I dunno. As you say, an absurd card.

Eisenhower is a little less absurd, with the propaganda restricted to the background, where the threat of a red world from the communist takeover is literally depicted. Makes more sense than arab-sword wielding apes.

MacArthur is a normal card on the front. I love the backs, with state propaganda boiled down to a very young target audience. "The United Nations pitched in to help the South Koreans, like your dad would help the folks next door if some bad men were beating them up."

Seems like a normal background picture to have for a General in the era of the tank, picturing a battle scene.

Battle scenes as backdrops for portraits of generals have been used many times. Many, many cards use the portrait + image related to what they are famous for in the background format. Look N See, T68, T118, on and on and on and on. This isn’t an unusual or unique type of card. That’s all I said.

I could say the sky is blue and someone would try to argue it here lol.
