230. Multi-Sport and Equipment Trade Card Overview
This was a trade card that featured a variety of sports.
The picture on the card depicted numerous athletes and various pieces of athletic equipment. With regards to the major sports, baseball equipment is pictured with a bat and a catcher’s mask. The case could be made that a football is also shown but I believe the ball pictured is for rugby, not American football.
In addition to the other sporting equipment, four sports are represented with athletes – a hurdler, a pole vaulter, runners, and a rowing team.
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.
