H804-34 Pink and Blue Trade Cards Overview

Sample baseball advertising trade card from Set H 804-34

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 color images of a boy pictured with a baseball bat. The set is known for its pink and blue coloring in the scenes.

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.

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.

H804-34 Pink and Blue Trade Cards Checklist

The cards in the set are not captioned. Below is a checklist of the cards based on Keetz’s descriptions in his book.

  1. Boy, erect with bat, rolling up sleeves
  2. Boy with bat, falling backward, broom hitting face
  3. Boy with bat, leaning forward, hat falling off, broom to rear
