Jack Sutthoff Cafe Business Card Back PoemJack Sutthoff Cafe Business CardThis business/trade card as printed for the cafe restaurant of former baseball player Jack Sutthoff.

Sutthoff was mostly a middling pitcher in the major leagues in the late 1800s and early 1900s. He lasted six seasons, playing for four teams – the Washington Senators, Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Perfectos, and the Philadelphia Phillies. Sutthoff had a career 32-40 record with a 3.54 ERA and was out of the game at age 32.

The cafe was in Cincinnati where he was born and died and included a picture of him in a baseball uniform. It was likely opened after his playing career or, at the earliest and less likely, during his time with the Reds (1901-1904).

The cafe was located at Enright and Warsaw Avenues in the Price Hill area of Cincinnati. it offered lunch all day, bowling, and billiards. The card also mentions serving Lackmann’s Beer drafts and the back includes a poem about being a bartender.
