Default Vancouver Sr.Amateur League cards - 1930's

Posted By: leon

Here is another type card that I was unaware of until
Mark Macrae sent out an email about them.
This was the only horizontal one in the group for sale.
With Mark's approval (hi Mark) he has said I could put this
information out to all interested on Net54 .....


These exceptionally rare cards feature players from the Vancouver
Senior Amateur League. They were distributed in bags of peanuts sold at Athletic Park
in Vancouver and were issued from 1932-1938. There are several different
sizes & designs which were issued over the years. This issue has never been
checklisted or catalogued. Cards are Black & White with blank backs. While sizing
varies (No two cards below are exactly the same) they are generally around 1 3/4 x
2 3/4. One of the very few groups known of these cards resides
in the permanent collection of the BC Hall of Fame.
The group was assembled over several decades by an advanced Western Canadian collector and were
gifted to the Museum. The closest comparable set I could find is
the 1924 Crescent Ice Cream Hanbury cards, which depict players in a similar
league. These peanut cards, however, are far scarcer.

There are about 100 different subjects, with a likelihood of more
different subjects turning up in the future. Kit Krieger worked on his
collection for several decades, and gifted it to the BC Hall of Fame
several years ago. The cards are not on public display to my knowledge,
but are available for viewing by making an appointment. The consignor
of these cards is a friend of Kit's and has collected whatever info he
could from Kit, along with the families of some of the players.They are
generically dated as 1930's because they were issued over several
different years. Pinning down specific players , designs and teams is
going to take some doing. The League was "Senior Amateur League" and
finding accurate comprehensive rosters from that league will be like
tracking down rosters from the Dallas Little League in the 50's.
