Everybody’s Rooting For Trade Card Overview

everybodys_rooting.jpgThis is a trade card that was used to promote various businesses.

The card features a woman sitting on a fence with a baseball game being played behind her inside of a large stadium. It includes the caption, “Everybody’s Rooting For,” which is printed on the fence.

As was the case with many trade cards, these were designed to be used by multiple businesses. That is evident from the fan being held by the woman, which is blank with the name of a specific business printed inside of it (in this case, Jacobs and Harris Tailors).

The bottom of the fence left room for an advertiser to print their own company information, including an address and telephone number.

One interesting thing about the scene on this card is that it is similar to a rare stamp promoting the Allentown Fair. On that issue, a woman is also sitting outside of a stadium (although, in a tree) while a baseball game plays out behind her.

Postcard Variation

While this card is cataloged as a trade card, it is important to point out that postcards of it also exist.

At least one, titled ‘The Red Sox Girl,’ is known. That postcard features the same image but has the 1913 schedule for the Boston Red Sox on the back as one of half of a divided postcard.

It is not known if other postcards using this same image were created.
