This says 1964 not 1961?

I bought a set with the box on eBay for like $20 a few years ago. I see them labelled as 1961 and 1964 frequently. The cards in my box could not possibly be from 1961 as they contain photographs from long after that.

Thanks. I'm going with the Geddes Witmer as his first "card" still, other than the 1961 Chocolates Simon I posted a while ago.

I've wanted this for a long time, Meryl's "rookie" which is part of a two card 1980 Telepop thing.

New card I got in a lot I bought for another set in it. Kit Carson, from the E50 Dockman Wild West Gum series, who lived one of the more interesting lives in American history. I like the artwork, even if its fairly simple, a lot more than the similar American Caramel issue of the period.

I know I am playing fast and loose by including this recent pick up in a thread of "great historical figures," but I really like this pick up in a card format of the iconic Bob Jackson photo of Lee Harvey Oswald being killed while handcuffed to James Leavelle.

I am not much of an autograph guy, but this is one of America's most famous images. I am a JFK assassination buff, and there are really not any LHO card options other than a few modern cards that can be had for $1-2.

Leavelle was an extremely willing through the mail signer for decades, but it is not often you see his autograph without a personalization. I will say I have always found it at least somewhat odd how receptive both Leavelle and Secret Service agent Clint Hill have been to sign anything related to the assassinations of both Kennedy and Oswald.

It is a custom card that I bought off eBay already slabbed. The back is blank. I thought the design was neat myself.

Thank you; I really like it. I was hoping this is was from a full set I could go pick up. Looks like a slightly modernized Topps Scoops card.

Nice card, Peter. Here’s something similar, some sort of Spanish issue I think.

Small pickup for my Look N See set. The back is about the surrender of Lee and makes no mention of his presidency, even though Grant is in the Presidents subset instead of being included as a General. He was better at the later than the former.

She was astonishingly young when she became the first woman in space. And she remains the only woman who made a solo flight. She's still among us at 86.

I believe she's still active today, and currently has a seat in the Duma.

Picked up a full set from my dealer at a local show this weekend (he knows what I want before I do!). I had ~50 or so of the cards sitting around, think I want to build it with both backs now. A bit less extreme version of Red Menace. The set clearly isn't a 1950 issue reading the backs. No Soviet or Korean leaders appear but several US Generals do. Marshall was Secretary of Defense at this time. Marshall doesn't have many cards, R18, War Gum, Look N See and this Freedoms War is about it for vintage.

Very rare blank back cards from T68. The Nero is the personal catch for me, as I grew up with Tacitus.

I bought 2 boxes of Bar's Pieces of the Past Super Premium Whatever edition. Each box has a 1/1 card and a relic. Each of the base subjects comes in a few different colors to produce enough 1/1's to have more than 107 boxes. You can get them for like $35-$40, so I spun the wheel and tried it.

First box on the left, a win. JFK 1/1 and the relic is from the real Messrs. Smith & Wesson, so perfect for my interests. Who knows what the relic item is from, probably a random newspaper clipping or letterhead. Not a fan of these relics, but I understand the hobby expectation of relics in modern and the difficulty in doing 'true' relics of old-time history figures without a massive budget and resulting huge cost of a box.

2nd box is a dud, this Hamilton is fugly. Hopefully I can trade it for a Sullivan or Jeffries boxing card from the set. The Seabiscuit relic is a piece from a horse saddle, kind of cool in an odd way. I support history cards and creativity

2 of the 4 plates of the most popular general of late 1861 and early 1862. Highly controversial performance in his time, Lee considered him his greatest adversary and sung his praises. Few others did as time went on.

$13.55 for a 1/1 of a founding father. This is the first card of John Hancock I have, I think.

The 'historical' part is debatable, but definitely a great figure.

2 more cabinet cards I recently picked up of Wilhelm I from the end of his life. There is little interest in German history before the World War's and cabinets were quite popular in Germany, so there is not much demand and quite a supply of a large number of different images. Considering his great historical significance, I think he is one of the best bargains in cabinet cards. The one on the left cost me a whopping $1.25.

I only know a bit of German but I believe the caption reads

Our Emperor
In the 90th year of life
[Berlin photographer] Copyright 1886.


The card itself is presumably from 1887, using the 1886 photograph, to be for his 90th year of life.

The black card bears an 1888 tag in the photo, but there is a stamp on the bottom right corner that seems to bear a copyright for 1889 and a word above that is just too faintly pressed into the card to make out.

What set is this? The Ten Commandments is probably my favorite movie but I’ve never thought to get a DeMille card before.

Picked these up to go with the incoming DeMille (thank you Peter). Looks like sets of the lobby cards aren't very expensive.

Now if there's a card of Mel Brooks as Moses from the Ten Commandments parody in History Of The World Part I, I'll have a new grail to chase...

Very rare Ingrid Bergman card from all the way back in 1936. Her first almost certainly.

Leo XIII was pope from 1878 to 1903, the oldest reigning Pope in history, so he has a ton of CDV's and Cabinets that far outstrip demand today, making him a great bargain for history collecting. Perhaps most importantly to history nerds, Leo XIII was the one who opened the Papal Archives to outsiders and enabled an immense amount of historical research and knowledge to enter the public sphere.


This is a black and white photo like most cabinet cards, the coloring is all uniquely hand done on the photo itself. Sometimes this was done by the photographers shop and sometimes by an artistic buyer (I assume). I was happy to get this one because of the great detail in the art - most of the time the artist did things like add red to the face, color a garment. None of the original photo is visible anymore besides the background, and in hand the detail they went to with he shading and coloring is impressive.

I finally picked up her first card, a 1962 Dutch Gum issue.

A pretty late CDV, of the future King Edward VII. I believe this to be a rather unprofessional 1890's creation.

And a Napoleon, one of the great men of history, I got a few days ago for a few bucks. The cabinet is not actually unbranded; there is some upside down text with part of an address and the studio at the top. The picture was pasted on upside down, so it is covering most of the caption. It wasn't supposed to have a big white blank space.
