I couldn't find any cards listed for him, but you can watch the entire "The Stratton Story" with James Stewart on Youtube:

These are the closest you get to a Stratton card...


Stratton, Monty F.
1937 BF104 Blankets
1938 Sawyer Biscuits White Sox


I have never heard of a Sawyer Biscuit of Stratton being found so I am unsure if that one is confirmed or just suspected to exist

With 4+ seasons on the White Sox, you would think he would have made it on a card.

Default 1949 movie THE STRATTON STORY

I highly recommend seeing "THE STRATTON STORY", excellently portrayed by Jimmy Stewart.
Jimmy Stewart's movie career, upon returning from being a highly decorated Air Force pilot in
WWII, was not going well. In 1949, this movie is credited with rejuvenating Stewart's career.

Here are many of the active and veteran BB players and coaches who are featured in this movie.

Gene Bearden
Wally Berger
Merle Combs
Bill Dickey
Joe DiMaggio
Jimmy Dykes
Frank Kelleher
John Kerr
Johnny Lindell
Jack Lohrke
"Peanuts" Lowrey
Clarence Maddern
Gene Mauch
George Metkovich
Lou Novikoff
Roy Partee
Jerry Priddy
Al Rosen
Hank Sauer
Mervyn Shea
Eddie Stewart
Lou Stringer
George Vico
Max West
Al Zarilla
Gus Zernial


In my opinion, this movie is the all-time 2nd best BB movie....next to The Pride of the Yankees.

If the accident had never happened, I wonder if Stratton would have made it in the 1939 Play Ball set. There's a good chance he wouldn't have. There are few White Sox in the set (no Luke Appling or Ted Lyons) and no Cubs at all. There aren't many Cardinals either, so it must have been a challenge for the east coast card manufacturer to sign "western" players. I see just he opposite with the Tattoo Orbit set, which is loaded with Cubs and White Sox, but is lacking in east coast players.

If Stratton didn't get hurt, his best bet probably would have been an exhibit card or a 1941 Double Play ...

That's my BF104!!!! I'm not sure how it ended up floating around in the cyber world (but I don't mind).

Stratton is also in the 1940 White Sox team issue photo set.

Sorry Paul. A few years ago when I was chasing a BF104 type I pulled the scan (probably from an auction I was hoping to win). Later I acquired a bunch of blankets, stored scans in the wrong folder, and thought yours was one of mine. Never meant to post some one else's card. But your's is in great condition! Should have realized it wasn't one of mine... Here's some of them, so we can get back to "cards".
