Default Colgan's Squares (aka Proofs)

Posted By: Reid Bruce

Hi all,

I'm sure this topic has been broached before, but what is the consensus on the history and status of the square cards which appear to have the same player portraits which are found on the Colgan's Chips. I've heard some say they are proofs. I recently purchased a Gus Getz (the only Boston NL square I have ever seen) and was wondering what to call it. Any thoughts....

Thanks

Default Colgan's Squares (aka Proofs)

Posted By: runscott

Personally, I believe they are very old copies of real Colgan's Chips cards - perhaps a knock-off some other company did shortly after the Colgan's came out. There was a good thread on this a while back - try using the "search" to dig it up.

Also, you see most of these being sold by Alan Hagar, the same guy who sells the re-colored cards in his own slabs, so I would stay away from them.

Hello Reid,

I started a post back in August about the Colgan's Squares, which got great feedback. Maybe some of the responses will help you out:
