Thanks for posting the hobby historical correspondences, Leon. It's always fun to read how they did this back in the day. I've posted this card before, but this is one of my favorite cards from a Lew Lipset ebay auction years ago. I'm surprised more Barker n172's don't surface, or maybe he did not stamp many that he once had in his collection.

I've seen Burdick's collection of Old Judges at the Met on a few occasions, and it is quite impressive. There are well over 1000 poses, maybe closer to 1500, including one of the four known Ansons in Uniform. It would be fun to see them again, with the benefit of the Old Judge book as a reference.

Here is one of the lists (the cover of the book) EC Wharton Tigar mentioned. It is a large with about 80ish legal size pages of lists in it. Also, some more letters from him to Buck...

Here are a couple more odds and ends. There are some xerox'd sheets of N172 cards, and a few other miscellaneous things, but this was most of the Tigar things. Happy collecting!!

Fascinating early work on cataloguing OJs. Remind us Leon how you came to own all these correspondences. Thx!

There are players missing from the Old Judge want list, such as Flynn and Gibson, that may have been unknown at that time.

Thanks for bringing these items to the boards attention.

I have sent an email to the British Museum this morning to see if the baseball cards from the Wharton-Tigar collection are available to view via public access or whether you have to request a private viewing. Hopefully, I will be able to visit either next weekend or weekend of 4th-5th May.

If anyone has anything specific they would like me to look for please let me know.

Martin
