Frankie Frisch Miller Deluxe Balloon Tires Blotter Overview

Frankie Frisch Miller Tires BlotterInk blotters were generally rectangular cards that were popular in the days of fountain pens. They would usually be kept on desks and were used to allow people to wipe off excess ink. To properly absorb the ink, blotters are generally a little thicker and have a different texture than traditional cards.

This blotter includes a black and white image of Hall of Famer Frankie Frisch promoting Miller Deluxe Balloon tires. It also includes his replica signature.

While not standard baseball cards, blotters with sports figures are absolutely collectible. Because they were used to absorb extra ink, you will often find them with ink spots all over them. Ones that haven’t been covered in ink demand a premium.

Blotters were generally an advertisement for a specific product, service, or organization. Along with a picture of a sports figure or team, they usually sought to promote some type of product or business.
