210. Boy with Bat (B359) 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 holding a baseball bat. A ball is making its way to him as he readies for it.
The theme for the boy’s outfit is generally one of red and yellow. He’s wearing a red and yellow striped hat along with yellow boots and red socks.
Advertisers printed their information at the bottom of the front as seen here or elsewhere on it. Some cards have stamped advertisements on the back with no identifying sponsor marks on the front.
The card is also identifiable by the small B359 printed on it. Collectors should note that because that is printed at the bottom, trimmed cards may not appear to have it.
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.
