218. Goodwear and Kinder-Garten Trade Card Overview
These were trade cards that were used to promote two brands of shoes.
The cards served as an advertisement for the Goodwear and Kinder-Garten shoes. The Kinder-Garten brand was geared towards children and infants while the Goodwear shoes were for ‘girls and little boys,’ as described on the card.
Pictured on the card is a recreational baseball scene. A total of nine children are on the card with various pieces of baseball equipment presented as well. The children appear to be choosing sides using one of the bats.
This card was numbered separately by noted trade card collector Frank Keetz in his book, “Baseball Advertising Trade Cards, 3rd Edition.” It was a trade card he identified but did not have a printed title on it. Because of that, he catalogued it with a number instead, which is the number in the title shown here.
