1910 Tim Jordan Game Cards Overview
The 1910 Tim Jordan Game is a unique issue not only because it was an early 1900s baseball game. Interestingly enough, the game was actually created by Jordan, who was a Major League player. This was similar to what former pitcher Walter Mails did in creating his ACC-designated WG7 Game Card set.
Jordan wasn’t just a player, he was a bit of a star for a few years. His career spanned from 1901 through 1910 with the Washington Senators, New York Highlanders, and Brooklyn Superbas. Twice, he led the National league in home runs (1906 and 1908). Jordan is also famous for appearing in the popular T206 white border set.
The Tim Jordan game included a total of 72 cards. A few different designs were on the fronts, depicting generic players (as well as a specific ‘action’, which was used to play the game), and the backs had the same baseball-themed design (featuring gloves, a catcher’s mask, and “Tim J. Jordan Card Came” inside of a baseball on top of a baseball diamond. Those backs were printed in blue ink.
Unlike Mails’ game, however, Jordan didn’t use actual players in his set. The images of players on the cards are entirely generic.
