Gets There Just the Same Trade Card Overview
This is a trade card that included a comical baseball scene.
The card shows an excessively bow-legged catcher standing in front of wooden backstop. In order to prevent pitched balls from going between his legs, he has a net in between his legs tied to each leg. Two opposing players look on in the background.
The caption explains the scene:
“The catcher of the visiting team is a little bow-legged, but suffers no inconvenience on that account by reason of the above ingenious device.”
One weird anomaly I have noticed with several of these cards is that the right corner has been cut off. Though, I have not seen it enough to determine if it is a regularity or just an odd occurrence.
Additionally, the examples I have seen have all had the Texas Siftings by Permission print at the bottom. It is unknown if this card comes with other advertiser prints/labeling or if it was exclusive to that company. Additionally, the lone back for this I have seen comes with an advertisement for Arbuckles’ Coffee. Again, I cannot say if this trade was used by others with different back advertisements or not. Overall, the card is relatively rare.
