I recently picked this Old Judge box up on Ebay and I while I haven't really been a collector of vintage baseball cards (mostly uniforms and equipment etc), I have been moving into vintage photos lately and would love to add an Old Judge baseball card to my collection. I am not concerned about condition, and in fact, would prefer to have an inexpensive card to pair with this item.

I would appreciate knowing what forum collectors may have avaialable. I would really like to have a card with a batting pose, or equipment visiible, if possible, but am not too picky. Perhaps, someone could also tell me more about the factory indicated on the box - Factory 1618, Ninth District, State of Pennsylvania.

Thanks! chris

This box is not from the company that made Old Judge baseball cards (Goodwin & Co.)

Chris - Jay is correct. OJ cards were packaged inside "slide and shell" boxes of Old Judge cigarettes. Here is a link to what the packs look like.

Thanks for the info. I thought the cigars and cigs were manufactured by the same co. Oh well.

Any one have any Old Judge cards (low end condition) for sale?
