Default 1966 Casey Stengel signed tribute card

Posted By: DD

Hi,
I purchased this signed Casey Stengel card in the last Leland's auction. Aside from the nice signature, I could not find any info about the card itself. I do not believe it is in the 2008 Standard Catalog. The back mentions his current job as VP of the Mets. The company who appears to have printed it is Associated
Business Aids of Dayton OH. Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Thanks!

I used to see those fairly frequently. I believe I read once that Casey used them as business cards. It is a "set" of 1.

Default Associated Business Aids HOF discs (circa 1966-1970)

In searching for information on a recently acquired Casey Stengel disc by Associated Business Aids of Dayton, OH, I confirmed what I thought was a distant memory from 1973. The cover of the April 1973 issue of The Trader Speaks (TTS) pictured three different discs: Stengel, Jesse Haines and Joe Medwick. I no longer have a copy of that issue (but recent eBay sales history shows one - http://www.ebay.com/itm/April-1973-T...p2047675.l2557 ).

There are at least three different ones and, if memory does not fail me now, I believe the story behind them has something to do with these being sent out by the individual Hall of Famers pictured (or possibly the HOF itself) to persons requesting postcards. I think these were temporary substitutes provided until the actual plaque postcards became available.

One further comment: the Stengel card reads exactly as his HOF plaque postcard except for two things: (1) The card misspells Boston as Boxton and (2) the card carries two lines ("Current Vice President New York Mets Ball Club") which, of course, does not appear on the plaque postcard.

Default Baseball related business cards

Congratulations on finally running this to ground. How hard was it to run down this thread after all that time ?

I know of one situation where Topps created multiple copies of a baseball card to serve as a business card. In 1976 they created such cards for Joe Garagiola . The card pictured him as a catcher in the format of their 1973 card design. They then created more of them in 1991, updating the card with different business bio info. Both cards can be found with or without autos on ebay from time to time. I don't know how many were made but they are not rare, so Joe must have been liberal in giving them out with autographs on them.

The 1990 Topps President Bush card, while not a business card, is another example of Topps creating multiple copies of a single card for an individual.

It was not especially difficult. I did a general internet search for certain key words in connection with the Stengel disc and (on the first page, I believe) was a link to the Network54 posting. It actually took twice as long to check the eBay listings (as well as my own small stock) for The Trader Speaks issue.

I would be interested to learn if there are more than the three...?

i think I may have 3 or 4 different versions of that card, mainly differences in the phone number listed on back.
