Baseball card production was virtually halted in the early 1940's due to paper shortages created by World War II. The "Modern Era" of baseball cards began in 1948 when Bowman Gum Inc. offered one card and one piece of gum in a pack for a penny.
The first important football set was the Mayo set featuring college players in 1984. Other than the 1935 National Chicle set no other key football set was issued until 1948 when noth Bowman and Leaf produced sets.

HARTLAND STATUESHartland produced it's first baseball statues back in the early 60's. Sports Collectibles Digest stated that the 1960's Mickey Mantle Hartland is the single most popular plastic sports statue ever produced ! In 1988 Hartland created their 25th Anniversary Editions which, except for some very minor details, were identical to the original.
Hartland partnered with America's leading hobby-periodical publisher, Krause Publications, to create the SCD Authentic series offering the original 18 as you've never seen them with each statue dramatically different from prior releases. They are amazingly beautiful and exquisitely detailed in their road uniforms with painted pinstripes and wood grained bats making them a unique collectible opportunity for both veteran collectors and Hartland newcomers alike.
Limited to only 2,500 pieces each, these statues are BRAND NEW, MINT and in THEIR ORIGINAL BOXES !!!

Vintage Baseball Wire Photos
Official authentic vintage UPI/AP Wirephotos/Laserphotos are very limited with
usually only 1 sent to each major newspaper. Transmitted electronically by the
UPI/AP only to subscribing newspapers for possible use in their sports sections,
the photos were printed in black & white on electro-static printers and are far from the
quality of photos we have become accustomed to. |
The photos were usually transmitted in 3 stages, CYAN, MAGENTA & YELLOW , which the newspaper, if they wanted, could then combine into a color photograph for their issue. Condition of most photos ranges from EX to NEAR MINT. As a bonus, some photos have the blue-line cropping marks made by editors prior to their appearing in the paper.
Scarce, interesting and a snapshot of history, most wire photos are of major subjects and moments in history and make great collectibles for player and team collectors ! Wirephotos and laserphotos are no longer transmitted in this manner (I believe they stopped in the early 1990's). Images are now transmitted directly from computer to computer with no need for an actual hardcopy photo to be produced.
Images of nearly all wirephotos are available. To save space and time, most were produced with a low resolution digital camera. The resulting images do not do the wirephotos justice. The wirephotos are much nicer than they appear in the images.
These are from the archives of the San Diego Union Tribune and will make a nice addition to your collection.
