Default Most Overlooked Decade in Hobby History?

IMO, Cards from the Roaring 1920's aren't given as much attention as they deserve.

Show us your favorite cards from the 1920s:

1922 V61 Neilsons Chocolate Bars- HARRY HOOPER.jpg

1923 Willard Chocolates WALTER JOHNSON PSA-5.jpg

1926-29 EXHIBITS- ROGERS HORNSBY PSA-DNA.jpg

1928 Harrington Ice Cream - BABE RUTH SGC-60.jpg

1928 W-502 6- BABE RUTH PSA-5.5.jpg

1928 Yeulings Ice Cream- Rogers Hornsby PSA-7.jpg

Some interesting and cool cards in the twenties (Billikens, anyone?) but just about everything seems to have been in black-and-white, unlike the 'teens and 'thirties which had a riot of colorful issues.

The 1920's is perhaps my favorite decade to collect! The game of baseball morphed into the game of today during that decade and the "Dead Ball Era" was officially gone! I love the real photos...photography had come a long way and you could get real action shots by the 1910's but in the 1920's is when they finally hit their stride.

All this being said the 1890's is BY FAR the most overlooked decade of collecting and if you were just going with any 10 year period 1895-1905 would take the cake. So few sets and some great players that barely had a collectible, let alone a card, made during their entire careers!

The color you do find in the 1920's basically comes in strip cards. An acquired taste for some, but others just naturally like ginger and coconut...go figure.

Jeff - I love that Sizzler!

Rhett- I agree that the 1890s are more overlooked than the 1920s, but I don't have any of those to show.

I guess I'll have to look for some Mayo Plug issues, don't think anything else would be affordable to me.


...think I'll check Krauss and find out what all was produced back then.

1920s don't get as much attention as the earlier or later cards, I agree. Here is a nice one...
