Rec'd the Winter 2008 SGC Collector Magazine today with the article on these 6 recently discovered cards. Is it just me but does the photo on the Dazzy Vance card look like Burleigh Grimes instead of Ol' Daz?
Dennis, fair enough. I'm not sure how this will turn out but here's a scan of the magazine photo.

WOW!!! That's an awesome card, who are the other players from that set that have been discovered? That's a new Dazzy Vance RC to go after now........

Six cards according to the article; Ruth, Dugan, Heilmann, Gandil, Gleason and Vance. But, I don't think that's Vance. If that's not Grimes I need new glasses for Christmas.

interesting that in 1920 (the issue of the cards) vance was not in the major leagues. perhaps he was a big star in the minors?

1. The year is incorrect.

2. The name is incorrect.

I'd say #1. Since Vance had a few games in 1916 and 1918 but didn't even get back to the majors until 1922, I'd guess that the card's year is misattributed.

i too, thought that the year of issue was wrong but gandil was out of baseball by 1920. so this clouds the issue date a little.

That is Grimes for sure, and it is correct that 1922 would seem to be the first year that it would make sense for Vance to be in a card set. Having a supposedly disgraced player like Gandil in a set at that point sounds a little fishy to me...where were these found?

Are we sure this is a legit original item? Dan.

Did you notice that all these cards have a different front. Perhaps their from different years. Frank
