E.R. Coburn and Company Base Ball and Polo Goods Trade Card Overview
This is a trade card that was used to promote a sporting goods business.
The card served as an advertisement for E.R. Coburn and Company. While their name is printed on the card shown, I am unsure if this card was used for other companies as some other trade cards were.
The card features a baseball scene with a drawing of a batter and catcher both awaiting the ball. It advertises E.R. Coburn’s sporting goods line of baseball and polo items, including products from Spaulding, Wright and Ditson, and Harwood. Items listed on the card include baseball bats, catcher’s masks, gloves, chest protectors (called breast protectors), and a variety of tennis and polo items. Footballs are also an item mentioned in the store’s stock.
