Default 1919 Cincinnati Reds Postcards - little help, please

I was contacted today by a prospective consignor who has 11 of the set of 24 of the 1919 Cincinnati Reds post cards. I have attached two pictures below. Also, I have attached a photo of one them that I pulled off of VCP. The VCP version shows that the front reads "Cincinnati Reds - Champions of National League 1919." On the photos of the postcards owned by our prospective consignor, the caption reads: "Cincinnati Reds - World Champion 1919." Any idea of why they do not match? Are some more rare than others (supposing there are two different varieties)?

Default Hi Mike

The SCD Big book acknowledges the two versions, and speculates that the "World Champions" type is just a second printing (makes sense). It does not differentiate the two when determining value. Here's my only one:

It is my understanding (and experience) that National League ones are tougher.

He has 11 of them; they look like they'd grade between 4 and 6. SGC? or PSA?

Hi Mike,
The set was first issued after the Reds won the pennant. It was subsequently reissued after the world series, thus you have two versions. I have heard certainly claims that one issue is particularly more difficult than the other; however, as an active collector of the set, I do not share those sentiments. People often claim that the Daubert is a variation as the text is printed across the top of the card. However, every Daubert card I have seen is like this. [Anyone seen anything else like this?].

Hope that helps. If you need any more help with the set, you can contact directly.

Ted

Mike, we did a "mini-article" on the PC799 Cincinnati Reds postcard set in Issue #39 of the Old Cardboard eNewsletter (see http://www.oldcardboard.com/eNews/20.../eNews39.htm#2). The article is also listed in the Article Index linked from the home page of the Old Cardboard website.

There is also a Set Profile, Checklist and Gallery of the complete 24-card set on the Old Cardboard website at http://www.oldcardboard.com/pc/pc799...?cardsetID=931.

Hope this helps,
Lyman

Ted,

I think he will consign the card to us. I am pretty sure the Daubert is on the list --- stay tuned.

No problemo MD. Shoot me an email if you need any help (blacksoxfan a/t/ cardpricer.com)

Post Script:
One of the examples I have in my collection is one of my favorite cards. It's of Ray Fisher and has an "advertisement" on the back - that is actually a survey. You can see the back by clicking on the image: http://www.blacksoxfan.com/reds.php#ray

Not sure, but I just spoke with the owner of the cards; he mailed them to us today. I will post some scans when I receive them.

Default Received the postcards today!!! Players are:

I wil post some scans later tonight. We have the following players (11 total postcards):

Larry Kopf - interesting, as it is the only one with white borders on the sides as well as the bottom (no border on top) - VG / VG-EX

Greasy Neale - VG-EX

Charles See - VG-EX

Jake Daubert - information written on top - VG-EX

Pat Moran - VG-EX

Sherwood Magee - VG-EX

Eddie Gerner - VG-EX

Heinie Groh - VG / VG-EX

Jimmy Smith - VG-EX

Hod Eller - VG-EX

Rube Bressler - VG-EX

Not sure if we should sell them raw (and, if so, on Net54, as opposed to eBay) or if we should get them graded. Thoughts?

Hi Mike,
As always - graded cards "tend" to sell for a premium. Whether you should incur the cost is something you will ultimately have to answer for yourself. If you are selling privately to an active and knowledgeable collector, then they might not have any concerns with the grading process. As with most any issue, mid-grade cards such as these might not bring in significantly more dollars as you are a reputable dealer. This issue does not have any "key cards" and can be found with relative ease in the condition you have described.

Of course (regarding the grading). I just know that people on here are interested and because they are an odd size (postcard), I was essentially inquiring whether those interested would prefer them graded or ungraded -- probably a dumb question, now that I think of it!

Default The other side of the coin .....

I prefer my cards raw, that way, I don't have to crack them out.

Mike, I'm also an Adolfo Luque collector, and I was hoping that it would be part of the group.

Anyone with a PC799 Adolfo Luque?

Default also seen with name strip at the top

There are 3-4 different types....

Besides the types you mentioned, they can be found with the name etc. at the top above the picture. I am not sure if it was just an accident and cut wrong, but they are out there (Ive owned 2). Im also not sure if both types can be found with the name at the top, the ones I had were "World's Champions".
