Nearly 100 years ago, a young student filled a composition book with something besides essays. Lightly and lovingly glued row by row into its blank pages were dozens of trading cards he had accumulated.

Exactly how they were acquired remains a mystery. Some were probably obtained as premiums received when satisfying a sweet tooth with a caramel. Others, perhaps, were gifts from older relatives who knew of the youngster’s hobby.

There were cards that featured the flags of nations, cards that contained images of great explorers, vacation spots and landmarks, animals, fish…and athletes.

Generations passed and on an early autumn day some 100 years after the last one was placed into the book, the young collector’s great nephew called New Jersey to ask vintage trading card specialist Robert Edward Auctions if the collection was worth consigning.

“Occasionally we get calls from relatives with old cards similar to these,” said company president Rob Lifson. “When he called, he was describing all these 1910 era nonsport cards, and we weren’t too optimistic about value. They’re fun to look at but cards of lighthouses and fish and animals just aren’t worth much even though they’re very old. That’s what it seemed we had here, but we had him go through every page just to be sure.”

Very great story. Interesting how they were stored in the book rather than in a shoebox.
