Default The first "unoffical" basketball card

Posted By: Andrew

I won it recently: goes nicely next to the first football card and very early Hockey card

Hi Rob,

It's from the 1910-11 T51 College Series Murad set. The image was also used for the T6 premium set.

I believe their is a non-sport basketball card that pre-dates the T51/T6 ,,,
If I get a chance I'll post a scan.

Not at all, it's not like I sunk a fortune into the card. Is there value/notoriety in being the second oldest basketball card? :--)

Seriously, I'm curious to see your scan. I've seen the Murad refernced at least three different times as being the first.

Is this really a basketball or non-sports card. I believe the Hamilton King Girls contains the first basketball card. I guess she was ahead of her time (WNBA).

Awesome contender for being the first. If the Murad can be considered the first, then so can the gal. Very cool, let me know if you want to part with it. :--)

The first "accepted" card was the T6 Murad card (of which there are two variatons). There were four B-51 basketball cards, plus two additional cards if you consider that two of the universities issued in both the 1st and 2nd series. The T-6 is generally considered to pre-date the B-51 cards.

The Hamilton King Premiums are great and are also from the 1910ish time period, however if you wish to consider these are the first unoffocial cards, then you must consider the 1899 Enameline Boy doll/card. This was miss termed the "Emameline Girl" on Jeff Mullen's website - one of many errors.

Also, we should throw in the little known "Baines Netball Card", which "could" have been produced in 1897...but more likely arrived in the 1902-04 time period.

...and don't forget the amazing B-33 basketball series from the 1910-13 range. They are amazing and tough to acquire.

If you would like images of any of these items, just drop me a message. I love all of these items - great items in our hobby.

Regards, Pat

I do not own the card you see - That one belonged to Jefferson Burdick.
Basketball and Football suffer from the same problem....there ain't much to pick from pre-1920s...but its fun looking.

Great info Pat! Did you mean B-51 or T-51? Anyway, I'd love to see those scans if you have a chance.
