Professional Teachers Agency Blotter Overview

Professional Teachers Agency BlotterInk blotters were generally rectangular cards that were popular in the days of fountain pens. They would usually be kept on desks and were used to allow people to wipe off excess ink. To properly absorb the ink, blotters are generally a little thicker and have a different texture than traditional cards.

This blotter was an advertisement for the Professional Teachers Agency. Teachers were encouraged to enroll in the organization at the Victoria Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa. The card has a baseball theme as it says, “Strike Out for a Better Job this Year” and also features a young boy as a batter.

While not standard trading cards, blotters with sports figures are absolutely collectible. Because they were used to absorb extra ink, you will often find them with ink spots all over them. Ones that haven’t been covered in ink demand a premium.

Blotters were generally an advertisement for a specific product, service, or organization. Along with a picture of a sports figure or team, they usually sought to promote some type of product or business.
