Found Some Cards

Found Some Cards
Hello, I recently found about a dozen small cards that have pictures of baseball players on the front of them that I would like to inquire about. I found them in an old trunk that belonged to my grandparents and I get the impression that these cards have been around for awhile - perhaps since the early 1900s. These are rather small cards - about 1 3/8' wide by 2 5/8" tall. On the back is printed in large letters: el Principe de Gales - cork tip HAVANA CIGARETTES and at the bottom: Baseball Series (Factory no 17, 24 Dist. VA). On the front there are pictures of various players in different poses identified on the bottom (ex: FREEMAN, TOLEDO; GRAY, WASHINGTON; KEELER, N.Y. AMER.)

I am wondering if they might be something people collect and, if so, what they might be worth. Thank you for any help you can provide, Al

RE: Found Some Cards
I believe they are baseball cards from 1909-1911. The value would depend on the condition and the player. Would love to see some scans if you are able. Sent you a pm with some more info.

RE: Found Some Cards
Hello All, I have scanned the cards I have (all the cards on one page) and created a couple of .jpg type files showing the front and back of all the cards. I tried to do a reply to the postings and attach the image files. However, I get an error message saying that the attachment is too large (over 500kbs). Is there any other way of sending the scanned pictures in? Or am I just doing something altogether wrong here. I've looked around the Beckett website and can't find any instructions on how to send in a scanned image file. Thanks for any advice. Al

RE: Found Some Cards
Attachments don't work on here. Not sure why they give that as an option.

What you need to do is use a photo hosting site (like photobucket.com). Upload the images there and then use the IMG codes they give with each picture.

Copy and paste the code into the thread and it will show the pictures. Photobucket is free, but you have to sign up with them. It's pretty simply really.

RE: Found Some Cards
Hey Crazyforkinsler5, Thanks much for the info. I will give the photobucket approach a try (I normally use Picasa for web photo sharing, I wonder if there might be an avenue there?). Anyway, I hope to have the pics up by this evening. Nice to get so much help, appreciate it, Al

RE: Found Some Cards
Hello, I uploaded the picture files to Picasa (a website I use for sharing pictures). So let's see if this will work. It looks to me like the cards are in pretty good shape but I have no idea of their condition relative to collection standards. I am including two files; one showing the front of the cards and the other the back of the cards.
