1934 Blue Valley Butter Blotter / Trade Card Overview
These long rectangular cards are actually ink blotters for Blue Valley Butter, even though they are sometimes referred to as trade cards. Blue Valley Butter was a product of the Blue Valley Creamery Company and, as stated on the cards at the bottom, these were produced in 1934.
The card features a classic baseball scene, complete with a batter, catcher, and a third player rallying, ‘Get in the Game!’ Off to the side are two girls watching, one with a bat. All of the children are wearing white and blue Blue Valley uniforms.
The ‘game’ is being played in what looks to be an open field with a billboard prominently displayed with an advertisement for Blue Valley Butter, citing it as ‘Fresh’, ‘Clean’, and with a ‘Finer Flavor.’
The cards are not incredibly rare but aren’t plentiful, either. And because they are ink blotters, they are often found damaged with ink spots on them.
