Hi,just picked this card up today. I found the text on back and picture on the front to be interestig. I had never heard of the Brownies before. I see there is a set listed in the ACC h768 about them. Anyone know anything about them? The text refers to figurines being manufactured,anyone have any?

Hake's Price Guide to CHARACTER TOYS, 6th edition, lists over 100

Brownies collectibles from the late 1890's to the early 1900's,

including - books, cut out & stuff cloth dolls, spoons, tray, toys,

ceramic figures, candle holders, pin-back buttons, advertizing cards,

Lion Coffee cut outs, etc.

are popular collectibles. These trade cards from a set featuring baseball have their own albeit "unofficial" designation as generally accepted by the trade and compiled by Frank Keetz. Our own RS has been working on a classification system as well for baseball ephemera but it seemed a bit fractured to me when I looked at an early model. Figure it's kind of common and worth 25-50.

no guarantees whether written or implied......

Jerry, The originator is Palmer Cox. I key on his name often on ebay to see what is available - figurines, cards, etc.

I am trying to complete the K33 Lion Coffee cards. I believe there are 25 standing and 25 riding figures:
