Was searching for some Old Judge stuff and found this thread from some years back. It's amazing what is on the board after 16 yrs of discussions...Figure at least a few members haven't seen it.

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.

Thanks, Leon. I hadn't seen this. It's a good complement to the Card Collector's Bulletin articles I've been posting about Old Judges and T210s.

Also, I have a pretty good run of The Cartophilic World from 1954 to 1963, though not complete. I know Buck Barker wrote some articles for it in the 50s about U.S. cards, and Wharton-Tigar also reprinted some articles from Card Collector's Bulletin around the time of the publication of the 1960 American Card Catalog. I'll look tonight and see if I can find any of the articles Wharton-Tigar mentioned in his 1962-63 letters to Barker.

John England spoke often of Mr. Wharton-Tigar, I believe John was a contributor on some of the indexes.

In 1985, not knowing any better I wrote to him asking some questions about British tennis and soccer issues. He responded with a nice note, some example cards and sent me current catalogs from both Murray's and The London Cigarette Card Company. A very generous man and obviously willing to help the uninformed like myself.

Martin-

I live in London...if you have any luck with the British Museum, please send me a note and let me know. A number of phone calls and notes from me suggests that they may not even have his collection catalogued...much less available for viewing

I am just getting around to more cataloging of hobby publications. Here is a binder, Approx. 9" x 13", which came with these letters and had many more documents in it, especially lists and cataloging information. I will try to scan some of the lists, definitions etc... from it into this thread. Also, here is the gifting acknowledgement from Wharton-Tigar to Barker.
