H804-28 Large Head Trade Cards Overview

Sample baseball advertising trade card from Set H 804-28

This set is part of the baseball comic series of trade cards. Noted collector Frank Keetz assigned it the designation used in his book, “Baseball Advertising Trade Cards 3rd Edition.”

The cards feature a variety of humorous baseball scenes. In particular, the players depicted are shown with unusually large equipment and, as named by Keetz, with usually large heads.

Many trade cards were used by numerous companies and that is the case with this set. That is in part because it was easier to use artwork that was already produced rather than going through the trouble of creating your own. For that reason, the fronts of the card can be blank with only the picture/caption or include an advertisement for different companies.

As is the case with most trade cards, these are fragile and printed on thinner card stock. For that reason, they can be torn or ripped quite easily and damaged easier than standard baseball cards.
