206. Baseball Scene with Crossed Bats and Flowers Trade Card (22) Overview
This is a trade card that was used by various businesses.
The card served as an advertisement for all sorts of products and included a color lithographic picture of a baseball scene. The game shown is at least a somewhat formal one since the teams are wearing matching uniforms and an umpire is present.
Companies using this trade card typically printed their information at the bottom in the blank area below the baseball game. The one shown here is blank and a ‘stock’ card. The card, like other trade issues, is printed on relatively thin stock.
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.
