Default More to come in 2011 SCBC

We'll be adding several more of the Mabley & Carew sets to the 2011 Standard Catalog.

I've recently picked up a few more '30s and '40s Reds photos, so I decided to put them side by side and compare them. All but the Kiki Cuyler have the same words on the back as the previously displayed Mabley and Carew photos. The Cuyler is definitely from 1935; the Hank Gowdy is likely 1939 (see the patch on his shoulder); the photo of Eric Tipton was likely issued in 1944 or 1945; and the last image is a Mabley and Carew of Kent Peterson that was sold as a 1949 issue. While the size varies from year to year, it is my belief these photos likely came from the same source and that Mabley and Carew simply inserted them into its folders. In another thread, Frank Wakefield said he believes the photos came from Quality Photo Shop, which was located on Vine Street in Cincinnati and issued photos like these during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Until I hear or see anything more compelling, I'm going to go with Frank's explanation. As for their value, I find it hard to believe that any of these should be worth significantly more or less than any of the others, although I see the Mabley and Carew cards on occasion with some pretty big price tags on them ...

Default thanks

Thanks for posting those, Chris. If there is a '49 series, and it looks like there certainly is, then I need a card from that series too!! With no years on them I guess all we have to go by are the checklists on the packets.

Default update

After more thought and comparisons I believe this smaller card, and the largest card, are only other Red's issued cards......there is some different wording on one of them and that might be an indicator of which are Mabley and Carew......not positive as of now though......regards

As a Reds collector, I'm always amazed by how many Reds photos of varying sizes I can find on eBay at any given time, particularly from the 1940s. While some of the photos are shot in Crosley Field, most are taken in spring training. Ranging from the 30s to the 60s, they're all clearly done by a professional who has a relationship with the team. I'm not sure team-issued would be a sure thing. It's possible a local photographer had a longstanding relationship with the team and handled the distribution. Frank's idea where they come from makes sense to me. As for the Mabry and Carew "cards," the photos bear so much resemblance to the others that I figure they have to be related, very much like the various e92s are related. That's my take, anyway ...

Default 1949 & 1954 Mabley & Carew Cincinnati Reds photo cards

A while ago I tried to find more information on Mabley & Carew (M & C) photo cards than what little the 2011 Standard Catalog and 2nd edition of Standard Vintage Catalog offered. (I have the 6th edition on the way.)

I acquired an interesting lot recently which features (what looks to be) stamped facsimile autographs on some, actual autographs on others and no autographs (but names typed on back) for still more. All are black and white 5" to 5-1/8" by 7" photographs.

1949 (based on the years players performed for Cincinnati): Most have names typed on reverse with a few autographed (Tony Cuccinello, Hank Sauer and Moe Savransky). The disclaimer "This picture may not be rented nor used for advertising purposes. THE CINCINNATI BASEBALL CLUB CO." is in smaller type with the message in upper and lower case type.

1954: On the reverse side, names are actual autographs (11) and facsimiles (9) while the disclaimer is larger and in all caps with The Cincinnati Baseball Club Co. in upper and lower case.

No card mentions Mabley & Carew. I have to wonder if they are M & C's or simply Cincinnati Reds photos?
