Default Let's see some aviators

Not considered a sport now, but it was when man first took motorized flight. I've been getting more into the early cards issued when airplanes were newfangled contraptions and an exciting and risky innovation. Here's some T38's issued at United Cigar Stores with fancy gold backs. The Wright Brothers, Wilbur Wright solo, Gabriel Voison, Alfred Le Blanc, Ralph Johnstone and more pictured.

They're little tough, but they pop up sometimes, usually in batches. 25 cards, in Gold United Cigar or White Tokio & Muezzin backs. The white backs rarely appear, I wouldn't call the golds common but they aren't worth much. $10-$30 for G-VG/EX cards. The Wrights, Curtiss, some of the error cards are worth more.

Here's a pair of C. 1911 T28's. Curtiss' flights in the June Bug played a large role in gaining public attention to aeroplane's. Bleriot was the first to cross the English Channel.

I love the phrasing on the back "one of a contemplated series of 250 different kinds."

Yes, when I found out there were only 25 actually made, I realized that making the set would be possible (one day when I seriously start looking for them, that is)

Jeff Dickson was an American boxing promoter in Europe in the interwar period, elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2000. This British 1930s RPPC shows him with fellow HOFers Thil and Brown. In 1943, Capt. Jeff Dickson was killed in action over Germany while serving in the U.S. Air Force during World War II.

Default 1938 Ardath Tobacco Empire Flying Boat

A beautiful set, all individual cards that make up this cutaway of the Empire Flying Boat. I have another set unframed. They're British so I rarely see them come up for sale as a set. The framing makes this set the only way to appreciate it.
