I kick myself for missing the Einstein you had for sale last year. I just could not pull the trigger at that time.

I really like your historical based cards.

I have long been fascinated by Amelia Earhart. She has only has a handful of cards from prior to her disappearance, several of which I have never seen for sale. The Heinz F-277 card was released in 1936, and believed to have been pulled when Earhart disappeared. That would explain its great rarity today.

I am not an autograph person at all, but this AE check is one of the favorite hobby pieces I own. One thing noteworthy about the check is that it is made out to Paul Mantz. Earhart hired Mantz as an advisor for long-distance flying and before her second attempt to circumnavigate the globe, Mantz said she was dangerous and not ready for such a flight.

That Heinz is impressive. Here's a more mundane Amelia.

Thanks, Peter. I missed out on a 1933 Orami Earhart on eBay maybe six months ago. That is the only Orami Earhart card I have ever seen for sale, and I think it is my favorite image of Earhart on a card, even though it is black and white.

https://www.psacard.com/psasetregist...gallery/141443

I have posted my Earhart cards at the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum page on Facebook previously and have talked AE cards with the museum curator. The museum was not even aware that Earhart had any cards issued during her lifetime other than the Sky Birds card.

I collect several historical figures who I find particularly interesting or generally admirable. Franklin, Washington, and Leo Tolstoy (does he count as a historical figure? Greatly influential on the culture and literature, but not politics or states really) I probably have the most of. I also collect old cards of historical interest generally.

Here are 3 Lee's. The middle is from a studio in Charlottesville, the image of him a heavily romanticized one at the grave of his most famous Corps commander, Stonewall Jackson.

And 3 Neurdein's, which is one of my favorite history sets. I'm a republican, so a Cicero would be cooler than Ceasar but it is hard to find one of him. A Cicero CDV portraying something other than a coin or statue remains one of my top wants.

Damn, now I gotta look for a Picasso card.

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and
So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole

Well the girls would turn the color
Of the avocado when he would drive
Down their street in his El Dorado
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you
Alright

Well he was only 5'3"
But girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not in New York

--The Modern Lovers

In addition to the Felix Potin, Picasso has two cards in the late 1960s Victoria Vedetten Parade set.

He's also in 1966 Lyons Maid Famous People but it's sort of goofy.

I've got a Victoria album on the way so that may solve my Picasso dilemma.

I am told it's hit or miss on soaking those out. Also as you know there are four different albums.

In some of the early years of Goodwin the SP's didn't have any parallels, which happens to include most of the Civil War Generals. Grant, Lee, Sheridan, Sherman all just get the base card, which is kind of nice because they are cheap and great looking artwork.

His performance in the field was inconsistent but P.G.T. Beauregard had a better name than the rest and was the first real hero General of the war. I found the plates for like $7.99 a pop somewhere, would love to get the other 2.

Well, my Victoria album disappeared into the infamous Jamaica, Queens mail center. I've had several packages go there to die over the years.

I like the Vita-Brits Pete. I was lucky enough to catch this one a few years ago. It was listed on ebay as an interesting post card of Marilyn from river of no return $8.00. I didn't think twice just said mine and bought it.

I was thrilled to find this recently, a 1990s German card.

Extremely and literally hagiographic, but a cool bit of American history. This image was plastered onto a huge number of CDV's after Lincoln's death and is pretty cheap.

There is too much great material to let this die already.

British tobacco cards are a great source for history cards, and they are usually very cheap. Here's a piece of the times, issued around the time of the Boer War. Lord Kitchener of Khartoum was a British hero of the times, his reputation as effective if not genteel later taking a perhaps undeserved hit in World War I. Christiaan de Wet is a footnote now, but a major figure then. The back notes he is a "foe worthy of British Steel", a farmer turned general turned acting President for a year, who fought the British in multiple wars and uprisings. Surprisingly, he managed to die peacefully on his farm.

I paid like .50 for these.

And some more Ogden's, while I'm sorting through them. I love the Dickens, I enjoy his books.
