Can anybody tell me something about this card? It's blank backed, measures just under 2.75 X 2.25 and is on relatively thin paper stock.

Only feature the Baltimore Orioles, issued in 2 different types, probably a collector issue. Huggins and Scott has had a few groups of these over the years, or contact James Feagin as he would know more than I.

I think Bob Lemke is familair with these cards, I recall an article a few years ago in SCD with a lot of information on these. I am on the road and cannot check my files but if Bob is reading he may chime in.

In my last months at SCD/Standard Catalog we did a couple of Standard Catalog Update columns on the ZIPCards, with fairly complete checklists, photos, etc. I am surprised to find that they have not been included in the ensuing editions of the Standard Catalog; that was my intention before I left.

Perhaps, since the data is captured in the SCBC system, they can be added to a future edition.

Sorry to report I no longer have access to my file copies of the old SCD Update columns, so I can't provide any real information.

Thanks for the info to all of you who responded. I've been on a 10-year work-induced sabatical from the hobby and am just getting back in. Being new to this tremendous site, I'm wondering if it's OK to post a few more "mystery" items that I acquired over the years.

Let me know off-line if you prefer.

3 different styles, from what Ive seen the round design is the most common but they are all fairly scarce. Ive owned 3 over the years, but dont activly look for them.

Huggins & Scott sold 25 different at auction about 3 years ago for $6,000 ($240 ea. on average)
