Default Type card collecting...Tough issues..Really Tough issues..Part II..Cabinet Cards

Posted By: Patrick McMenemy

Since the first discussion seemed to have a favorable response, I figured a thread on tough cabinet cards would also create some interest. How would our cabinet type card collectors rate the following eleven (11) cabinet card issues with regards to most difficult to find.


Jones,Keyser & Arras Cabinets
Betz Studio Cabinets
Carl Horner Cabinets
H801-7 Old Mill Cabinets
M110 Sporting Life Cabinets
Old Judge Cabinets
Newsboy Cabinets
T3 Turkey Red Cabinets
T4 Obak Cabinets
T5 Pinkerton Cabinets
W600 Sporting Life Cabinets

T4 Obaks and H801-7 Old Mills seem to be the two toughest in your group, but because there have been a few large Obak offerings in the last couple of years and I know of no Old Mill hoards, the toughest is Old Mill. There was a rumor years ago that someone found a Joe Jackson, but I believe that is actually impossible. That might sell for a few shekels if it was actually discovered.

I never really understood why M110 Sporting Life's are referred to as cabinets. They are produced on very thin paper, and by no means are cabinets. Maybe because they look kinda like T3's. But I wouldn't consider them to be in the cabinet category, however they are tough--especially in decent condition.

Mike Wheat has a decent one (I think it is Frank Chance) in his ebay store right now for $2,250.

I have PG cabinets of actors and actresses but no baseball players (yet).

I think M110's have a better right to be designated "cabinets" than to T3's - M110's are at least representations of photos mounted to a backing board. T3's are simply large cards.

Dukes are cabinets. Doesn't the term "cabinet" refer to the size of the card, all those issues that fall into a group larger than an N173 and no bigger than a Duke. The next size is "imperial cabinet" which is big enough to frame and display but not nearly the size of a "mammoth plate."

but I think the definition also involves what is on the object, not just the size. If I took a piece of board the size of a cabinet card and painted a picture on it, that wouldn't make it a cabinet card...or would it?

I neglected to say it has to be printed or photographic. Fair enough.
