Om föremålet

Offered is one of the more fascinating baseball cards ever produced. No, it's not a favored player or pose but a rare glimpse into a by-gone era. The T209 Contentnea Black & White Photo Series from 1910 features a lengthy list of long forgotten baseball players and this card picturing a man identified as B. E. Thompson dressed as "Uncle Sam." The personality dates back to the early 1800s and would become an icon of the American war efforts thanks in large part to a recruitment poster by James Montgomery Flagg. The "model" used for the famous Uncle Sam poster is supposed to be an "aged" version of Flagg himself but it also strikes a strong resemblance to Mr. Thompson. The text on the back reads, "Be Sure and Save B. E. Thompson's Picture" and "Ask Your Dealer About It." This copy is unique to Thompson cards. Old Cardboard Magazine (issue #28) has an article explaining how this card was the catalyst for an exchange program for an album which included pictures of 212 of the 224 baseball players and a special page with this card. The album is close to impossible to find. This card requires a painful amount of searching and maybe some pure luck in order to add it to your collection. Graded HID07601242017
