Burdock Blood Bitters Trade Card (Man with Child in Head)
1 Burdock Blood Bitters Trade Card (Man with Child in Head)
Unknown Burdock Blood Bitters Unknown Very good 
This has to be the oddest trade card ever produced. I've had it for many years and, as you can see, it is part of the montage photo at the top of my website. I have finally decided to let it go even though I have still never figured out why the guy's head's ripped open to expose a rather creepy child inside. The turns of the "paper" look so real it's amazing. The card was issued to sell "the greatest of all blood purifiers." It's larger than average and measures 4-1/2"x6" and has numerous testimonials at back showing how effective it was for curing dyspepsia, biliousness, sick headache and constipation. The card was given to customers by H.T. Hess Druggist, Jackson Centre, Pennsylvania. Card shows a small bit of edge wear and toning to bottom corners on reverse side. 
Price: 35.00 USD

Die-cut Pig Trade Card Cudahy's Packing  Co.
2 Die-cut Pig Trade Card Cudahy's Packing Co. "Rex Brand" Meats (Opens)
Chicago; Omaha; Sioux City, Neb.; Los Angeles Cudahy's Packing Company No date. Circa early 1900's card Very good 
This one's not at all rare because it was too cute not to keep! It still charms collectors though and has even inspired modern look-alikes in the forms of magnets. This guy's the real deal though! He measures 2-1/2" across at the widest point, which is his feet, and 6" from the top of crown to the bottom of his feet. "King Pig" sits up and begs to be part of the "Rex Brand" line of meats packed by the Cudahy Company. Both front and back sides of the card are identical. Inside the text covers the celebrated Rex Brand sugar cured meats,pure leaf lard, Cudahy's sugar cured hams, breakfast bacon, Rex Brand extract of beef and Cudahy's Essence of Pepsin should you eat too much of the other stuff! Card is in very good condition with just with a few tiny dots of edge wear.

Eight Coffee Trade Cards (Lion, Arbuckle, Gold Medal, Dilworth's)
3 Eight Coffee Trade Cards (Lion, Arbuckle, Gold Medal, Dilworth's)
Good 
Here we have eight trade cards, none dated, but likely turn-of-the-century. Three are from Lion, two from Arbuckle's,two from Gold Medal and the smallest one from Dilworth's. None have been pasted into an album, though the backs of all have toned from cuddling up too close to other high acidic paper items. There's a small margin stain to one, darkening to upper corner of one and toning to lower corner of another. Overall they are quite still nice. The lagest measures 3-1/4"x5-1/4" and the smallest(from Dilworth's) a petite 2-1/2"x3"

Gail Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Two Trade Cards
4 Gail Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Two Trade Cards
New York City New York Condensed Milk Company 1886 and 1887 Very good 
It's very interesting that the cutest babies are in the older card (1886) and the -- shall we say, odder ones? -- followed the next year. Both cards have the same copy on reverse side, which is devoted to the directions for use. Interesting, too, that this product remains on the grocery shelves today. the pastel card measures 3-1/2"x5" and the other 3-1/2"x5-1/2". Both are clean and nice, though I did re-enforce a corner crease at bottom left on the pastel card with invisible non-browning archival tape. The other card has toned a bit at back. Otherwise they're great.

Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Trade Card and PostCard
5 Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Trade Card and PostCard
New York, New York Park & Tilford's Candy Very Good 
A pretty image for a New York City candy company which produced a combination trade card and post card. The message "Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Are The Best" runs across the bottom of the card leaving plenty of room for a message. The card shows a divided back and has not been written on, nor postally used. In 1899 Park & Tilford's were a high end grocery store, but by 1912 were receiving accolades for their industrialization which allowed them to make better candy faster. The card is clean with a small loss of color to lower left corner of face and some toning to the back. Will arrive in plastic sleeve.

Star Soap Trade Cards Huge Chromolithographs (Victoriana)
6 Star Soap Trade Cards Huge Chromolithographs (Victoriana)
Detroit, Michigan Calvert Lithograph Company Unknown; Circa 1885-1894 Good-plus 
Beautiful color-saturated chromolithographs advertising Star Soap which had a factory in Zanesville, Ohio. These cards are VERY big at 5-1/2" x 7-3/4". Both show little girls --one with her dog and the other washing her doll. The company, Schultz's Sops, introduced the product in 1865 which they say on the back of the cards "was over 20 years ago". Given that info they could date from 1885 to 1894. As you can see from the second photo one card is toned at the back and the shows what looks like red ink at the back. Both are quite legible though.

Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
7 Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
Pittsburgh, PA D. Arnheim early 1900's Very good 
Arnheim's liniment is best known for its slogan "For Man and Beast." It's an example of truth in advertising because Arnheim's peddled his product for both horses and people. The reverse side of the card shows a glowing testament of its efficacy for people, as well as a list of maladies it could help -- rheumatism, lumbago, bruises, sprained muscles and tendons, inflammatory sore throat or quinsy, diseases of the air passages, pains in the side, back or loins, cramps or pains in the bowels, neuralgia, headache and swelled face from toothache. Two cards have the exact same copy, but the third (little girl with the hat) offers a testimnonial too. They all measure 3"x4" and are quite nice, save toning to outer border of the one with the little boy on the fence and a small corner crease to the pink one.

10 Trade Card: Dr. C. McLanes Liver Pills Prepared Only by Fleming Bros. Pittsburgh, PA (1888)
Pittsburgh, PA. Fleming Brothers 1888 Card Near fine condition 
This is a large and very pretty trade card which involves three different entities. Dr. McClanes came up with the "celebrated liver pills" which supposedly cured sick headache, billiousness, torpid liver, dyspepsia, malaria constiveness, impure blood, poor appetite, and nervousness. The Fleming Brothers were the next ones in when they began prepared the pills in Pittsburg. The cards then went to any druggist who would like to have his name on the back, as is the case here. This one was was W.R. Ryan of Cleveland, Ohio. The card measures 3-3/4" x 5-3/4 and is clean and nice on both sides.

Trade Card The Erie Hotel Chicago, Kornemann, H. Manager
12 Kornemann, H. Manager Trade Card The Erie Hotel Chicago
Chicago The Erie Cotel unknown 
This one's a mystery! I googled, I "binged", I searched everywhere, but none of the clues on this trade card led me to an Erie Hotel in Chicago except for ONE entry which doesn't seem right. The address on the card is 3700 Lake Park Avenue,Chicago, but the only vintage hotel with the Erie name was built in 1891 on State Street and was ultimately demolished. This Erie Hotel was likewise demolished because today the address is a newish residential building with $400,000 apartments. At any rate, I like this card a lot, as it was only two blocks from the Chicago Exposition overlooking Lake Michigan and the manager was H. Konneman who for 30 years prior was organist and choir director at St. Stephen's Lutheran church. Rooms were $1 with a bath on each floor, or $1.50 per person for a suite with a private bath. Card measures 3-1/4"x6-1/2". Plain on back. There is no date on the card, but it does make reference to being close to the Exhibition. If it's referring to the Columbian Exposition, Chicago World's Fair that sets it in 1893, but of course it's a bit speculative.
