That Hotel Schedule card is rare, Ive never seen another.

The normal blank backed cards were issued in a boxed set of 40 (machine cut). and most likely sold for 10 cents a box.

Here is a link to the related Movie Star set with a couple boxes.

Hey Frank
I checked out that link and didn't really see where there were baseball players listed? Only one of those pictures has a signature on the shoulder area too. I would like to see something closer to baseball players to confirm this. Do you know of anything else? best regards

(this is the 2nd schedule strip card I have...though the other is only half of one)

I found a complete set about 2 years ago but it was missing one player. These cards were in such nice condition when I found them that I doubt the original owner would have misplaced a card. Frank is right that they were machine cut, but some of the cards were noticeably thinner (not as wide but not trimmed)than the rest while all were exactly the same height. The thinner ones were all exactly the same width as well so it appeared to me that they came issued in perhaps two print runs and it would seem highly unlikely that both print runs of thinner and thicker cards would have been issued in a single box for resale.

Just my opinion from having discovered all but one card in a vintage find.

Kromo Gravure Photo Co. made the W575-2 cards. Its been listed that way in the SCD Catalog.... at least back to the 2002 SCD, maybe longer. Except the SCD misspells it "Gravue".

If I remember right, I read somewhere a couple years back they were a boxed set and I researched it and found the Movie cards/box info.

I have never seen the Baseball Box. Anyone have one?




Here is more info from the same Movie card site.

I have appx. 80 of these cards at the present time and have them on both the thicker and thinner card stock. They are all very uniform in size regardless of the cut and all appear to be machine cut. Interestingly enough on the few examples that you see that are PSA graded they denote them as "Hand Cut." I am not sure where they get their informstion from. I have the majority of mine SGC graded and they do not denote them as such. I have been collecting these for years and Leon's example is the only case I have ever seen where there are more than one card in a strip. Also of interest is the number of times that you see these listed in guides and auctions as strip cards.

Like I said I have another with only half a schedule on back and one player. I was amazed when I picked this up and put it under a 10x to see if it was seperated where the middle crease is. It's never been seperated. I am sure that they are called "strip" cards as Burdick labelled them as the catch all "W" series...along with those really big strip cards...W600's .... Interesting stuff here....

The W designation is that of anonymous card not necessarily a strip card. Cool card Leon.
