Default Will someone tell me about Ford-Canada Museum cards

A couple of months ago, maybe, I bought a card of Vic Keen. He pitched in the 20's, won some key games for the Cardinals in 1926. There's not much out there that depicts Vic Keen. So, I was glad to get what I thought was a card, a signed card.

I have not ever heard of these. Not seen one from days of perusing The Old Judge, nothing in the American Card Catalog, I didn't find anything from Mr. Sugar's books, nor the Beckett Books, nor The Standard Catalog. I've not heard of these.

After Keen arrives, I see another Ford-Canada, on eBay... Smokey Joe Wood. And I find myself falling into the PSA Rabbitt Hole... It's graded by PSA, it must be legit. Well, it is slabbed, it's signed, and DNA certified the signature. I have a signed check by Wood, the autograph seems genuine. I have a Keen signed index card, the Ford-Canada autograph seems genuine, too. Obviously, Woods didn't sign in the space at the top of the card.

There was a time I would have asked Ted Z... or Mr. Lipset, or Bob Lemke. I did ask Scott Brockelman, who quietly retains a head full of ball card knowledge. He had not heard of them, and he could find nothing about them. The museum address doesn't seem to match up with a business, it seems to possibly now be a residence. And Scott looked a bit in Newspapers.com, an important yet occasionally overlooked, resource. Nothing.

Timeline, I'd guess would be the 50's or 60's; I think the most recent they could be would be in the mid 1970's.

Anyone know about these? Subsequent sets? The Museum?? Do you think of these as baseball cards???

Scott, your thoughts? Leon, if you have one then I'd guess there are very few of them. Help!!!
