Converse Athletic Shoes Blotter Overview

Converse Athletic Shoes BlottersInk 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 was an advertisement for Converse athletic shoes. One of their shoes is pictured as are pictures of four sports/recreational activities. One features the sport of baseball with a generic scene of a game. All pictures were in color but included only orange and black ink.

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.
