Default 1947 Mabley & Carew Boys Shops- Photo Cards

I have a few items from this mfg of photo-card giveaways. Anyone have anymore info on them, other than what is in the Krause Big Book? The checklist in the 2009 book is incomplete.

Default 1947 Mabley & Carew Boys Shops- Photo Cards

I've been trying to get some info on some that I have as well from 1948 and 1949. They have the same markings on the back of the photos ("This picture may not be rented nor used for advertising purposes ... The Cincinnati Baseball Club") as many I've seen that were produced by the Reds from the 1930s through the 1960s ...

Default thanks

Hey Chris
Thanks for posting. I got the 1947 date from the SCD plus the fact it shows a 1948 schedule. I guess it could be 1948. Here is one I just picked up.....I really haven't seen too many of them before...

On Frank Ward's website, there's a Bill Werber photo displayed that has almost the same back, and I believe it has similar dimensions. It's the last item listed in his 1930-39 section. I wonder if the Mabley and Carew "cards" from the late 40s are simply team-issued Reds photos that were inserted into Mabley and Carew folders?

Default the question then

I can certainly see them using a set put out by the team in 1948. The SCD doesn't list a team set for that year but I have seen some things be uncataloged (can I say that?).

Hi, back is similar....
but I believe the ca.1939 Weber was a bit smaller, I believe 2.5" by 3.5" (modern card size).

PS. I think Leon has it now too

Several of these were on ebay a couple of months ago. The seller listed them as being from various years -- some from 1947, some 1948, and some 1949. For some years, he had the original folder that they came in, which included a schedule or some other indication of date. If I remember correctly, he didn't have that kind of confirmation for the 1949s, but for some reason seemed confident of the date.

Supposedly I have Mableys from '47, '48, '49, and '51. Not sure how to date them, unless they come with the folder. Below are scans of the '47, '48, & '51 folders, which confirms that Mabley issued cards in those years. It would only seem logical that they gave out cards in '49 & '50 (and maybe other years too), but I haven't seen folders for any other years. There are lots of Reds photos in different sizes. Does anyone have more information on which were Mableys, team issues, or something else? Or how to determine the year of issue?

A surprising number of these photos ended up on other baseball cards. Here are two from the '49 set that ended up in the 1950 Bowman set ...
