A visitor to my website who lives in Pennsylvania sent this one:
"I have an old item with Three-Finger Brown's photo on it. It just says, Brown, on it. It is about 1 1/4 inch square on heavy cardboard and appears to have been cut out from a candy box etc. The item was returned by PSA a few years ago and I was told it was not gradable but didn't give a reason. I am attaching a scan of it for you to see and wondered if you could give me any information on this item?"
Your card looks like it's from a set issued in 1907. It's a "strip card" known to the hobby as W555. Truthfully, I haven't seen a whole lot of these, but a great place to start would be the Old Cardboard website's description of the set. It mentions that an "average" card would sell for $35 in VG condition, but Brown is a Hall of Fame player and should sell for more than that.
Happy New Year! - I decided that New Year's Day was the perfect time to feature the first card of the 1973 Topps set. That was back in 2011, and today is the first day since...
