Haas Remedy Trade Cards Overview
These are trade cards promoting a medical remedy brand.
The cards advertise Dr. Haas’ veterinary medicines and feature animals. The set is almost entirely a non-sports issue and was distributed over several years in the 1880s. But in addition to two boxing cards and some smaller sports, such as ice skating and roller skating, a baseball card is included.
The card features the ‘Haas Remedy Nine,’ a fictional baseball team of pigs defeating a sickly group of pigs. Interestingly, while all of the players are pigs, a human umpire and scorekeeper are shown as well.
An outside fence states that Haas remedy prevents cholera and the caption at the bottom of the white-bordered card says that ‘The Haas Remedy Nine Defeats the Cholera Nine Every Time.’ The lithograph print was developed by the Bufford Lithograph Company.
