Today at our local monthly show, dealer had Indian Gum cards trimmed for $1 each. I picked up all ten cards he had, as several were hits to my list, and I can always use doubles. When I got home I discovered four of the cards seemed different, and learned from the PSA site that "24 cards in the 312 series were printed with white backgrounds".
These are from the 312 series and #202 #201 #199 #196
Are these cards tough to find?

Looks like PSA doesn't denote the variations in the set in their pop report.  Also kind of crazy is that they've graded 11,000 from this set, and have 0 PSA 10s, only 22 PSA 9s, and 44 PSA 8.5s.

Nice grabs at a great price.

Thanks for the response John. When I saw these cards, I didn't think "oh wow Indian Gum cards with white backgrounds" because I didn't even know they existed or were a thing. What I saw were higher numbered Indian Gum cards, and some were even on my want list for $1 each!
When I updated my lists, it turns out I already had three of the regular cards in the box. Heres a scan I think they are cool!

As for the cut bottoms, they could have been '30s leftovers that were cut and
given in the late 40s and early 50s  before and maybe with  the black backs.

As for the white backgrounds, just scroll down this gallery file:

N
ote than none of the links within the above file works.
The reason was years ago that the gallery coded files
over-ran the quota of my account. I had a choice of
never adding another set, or removing 100s of links within
previous sets. It was a choice I reluctantly made.

Larry, 

I'm sure I have a couple hundred Indian Gum cards in my dupe box. Either post it here or shoot me an email.    jvb6034@aol.com



1. What's on your want list?

2. What condition are you looking for?

Responding to your question....  Yes this variation is TOUGH.  In the neighborhood of the Series of 24 and/or Series of 288 high 24 numbers.  Good pick up....
