1920s Korry-Krome Flexible Leather Soles Blotter Overview
Ink 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 served as an advertisement for Korry-Krome Flexible Leather Soles. The card also advertised where shoes with the Korry-Krome soles could be purchased. Unlike other blotters, this one did not use the picture of a real player. Instead, a boy with a baseball bat is shown.
While not standard trading 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.
