The cover and table of contents for Issue #29 are shown below.
The articles in this issue include:
1) "1937 F273-27 Kellogg’s PEP Cereal Sports Stamps Feature 18 Players" by Frank Ceresi and John Holway. Authors Ceresi and Holway briefly profile the 1937 F273-27 Kellogg’s PEP Cereal Sports Stamps set. All eighteen baseball players featured in the set are shown that were long along ago mounted on a premium album page designed to store the stamps.
2) "The Historic Ballparks of Cartoonist Gene Mack" by Old Cardboard Staff. Here, the ballpark cartoons of Gene Mack are reproduced. Perhaps less well known than his cousin and longtime Athletics manager Connie, Gene gained widespread acclaim of his own in the 1940s as a sports cartoonist for the Boston Globe and The Sporting News. The fourteen ballparks that he characterizes in these cartoons provide a captivating history of Major League Baseball throughout the first half of the twentieth century.
3) "1929 Leader Novelty Boxes Surface; Checklist Continues to Expand" by Mark Macrae and Dan Mckee. Two well known collectors pool their knowledge of the very scarce Leader Novelty issue of 1929. Also included for the first time is a gallery of all 34 players known to the set, as well as images of two recently surfaced boxes in which the Leader cards were distributed. Other baseball-related sets produced by the company are also briefly profiled in a full-page side panel to the article.
4) "N167 Old Judge: The First Baseball Card Set" by Jim Blumenthal. Our cover article for this issue highlights the N167 Old Judge set which is considered by most collectors to be the first traditional baseball card set--now aged more than a century and a quarter. For the first time ever, we include a gallery of all known cards in one of the most historic and important sets in the vintage card hobby.
In addition to the above articles, all issues of Old Cardboard magazine include regular sections of Editor's Notebook and Collector's Dugout as well as informative messages from our sponsors.
