207. Young Batter with Blue/Orange Socks Trade Card 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 young boy at bat. The child is wearing blue and orange socks and also has blue and orange sleeves and a hat with those colors.
While this card is most commonly seen as a 3″ x 5″, it has also been seen in a larger format. Advertisers using this card printed their name and information in various places, including the front and/or the back.
Finally, some of the cards have an identifying mark. In the lower left corner, a ‘T’ appears in a shield along with a No. 75 (as shown in the card here).
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.
