1952 Red Man
Ewell Blackwell

This card has several issues.

First, it's missing its bottom tab. And second, it's got some sort of staining in the bottom right corner.

These cards were issued with Red Man Tobacco and included a tab along their bottom which were intended to be cut off and sent in for a premium. Obviously this one is missing.

I hope the bottom stain is something like soda or coffee and not tobacco juice.

This card, for all its flaws, does have beautiful artwork.

No, I only have a few (probably less than a dozen). This is actually a recent purchase. Thanks for reading.

If you mean do I have all of the cards posted on this blog the answer is yes, they're all part of my personal collection. If you mean do I have the entire Red Man set, the answer is no. Sorry for any confusion.
