Default 47-66 Exhibit with a Post-Gazette ad on back

Posted By: leon

I sold my Dad's Cookies card as it was post 1950. I only collect pre-1950 for the most part. The value didn't go along with the scarcity...I think it brought less than $75......and it did have the staple hole in it. My thought is that they were stapled to bags of cookies but if there are ones without staple holes I guess all of them weren't.....If any of those exhibits with the ad back become available I would be interested in one..

I think, based on other cards I've seen, that on occasion ESCO made deals to print the backs of their cards with specific information for a business. In addition to the cookie cards mentioned already, I've seen ads for movie theaters on 1920s and 1930s exhibits and even an ad for a baseball card publication. I've also seen the cards with post-cutting ink stamps on the backs for advertisers, but these are readily distinguished from printings by their hand-placed look.

Given the size, complexity, uniformity and wet sheet transfer of the back printing you show I suspect that the publication made a deal with ESCO to do a run of ad cards for it. My guess is that there will ultimately be 32 (one sheet) or 64(two sheets) different cards.

Some cards I will want to hang onto but I will listen to any offers or trades.I would love to find the rest of these for a complete set of 32 or 64 cards but that is probably an exercise in futility.I will post again when I am ready to part with some,right now I do not have a lot of time to sit down and decide what to do with these.
