212. Buffords Boy with Bat and Brown Uniform (626) Trade Card Overview
This is a trade card that features a young child.
Pictured is a boy wearing a brown, dress outfit. No other players are seen and he is merely holding a bat towards the ground, as if preparing to hit.
The card is further identifiable by a small printed ‘626’ in the lower right corner as well as the lithographer name, Buffords, in the left. The card also has a brown border around the edge, though it is not shown here.
It should be noted that at least two examples of this card exist, a smaller one and one that is slightly larger. Only the larger one is believed to have the ‘626’ numbering. in addition, some cards are blank on the front with only the picture and others have a printed or stamped advertiser name.
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.
