Massive Card Show Haul - Part 5

Just three cards today. But they are pre-war. My favorite.

Boom. 1909-11 T206 Mike Mitchell. This puts me past the halfway point for the Reds team set. 12 of 23. Nice. Mitchell played 8 years in the bigs, the first 6 in Cincy, even getting a few MVP votes in 1911 and leading the league in triples in 1909 an 1910. Here's the back, a standard Piedmont:

Most excellent.

These two are from a 1938-1939 Reds sets catalogued as Orange/Grey W711-1. Alright then. Bucky Walters was NL MVP in 1939. Lonny Frey was a three time All Star. Both were members of the 1940 Reds championship team. The backs are simply write-ups with no set info:

Great finds.

More still to come. Go Reds.


  1. The orange / gray cards I never knew about .. Only Reds players represented. I'll have to pick one out for the type collection. Very cool

    1. I had seen em before, but never in person. So I had to grab a couple.
