H804-20 Western and Southern Life Insurance Trade Cards Overview

Sample baseball advertising trade card from Set H 804-20

This set is part of the baseball comic series of trade cards. Noted collector Frank Keetz assigned it the designation used in his book, “Baseball Advertising Trade Cards 3rd Edition.”

Similar to other trade cards of the era depicting baseball, children are featured playing the game here. Two baseball cards are currently known to exist – one featuring a batter and catcher while the other one, a sliding baserunner.

As is the case with most trade cards, these are fragile and printed on thinner card stock. For that reason, they can be torn or ripped quite easily and damaged easier than standard baseball cards.
