Recently, I stumbled across these somewhat unusual "cards" in the form of bookmarks. Actually, they are bookmarks, but still a fun paper collectible. I have only ever seen these four cards alluding to how rare they are. I usually do an occasional search for sumo bookmarks and just happened to time it right for these to be at auction. It looks like these were issued in uncut sheet that kids would have to cut out and were likely issued in kids magazines which were really popular in the 1950s. I love the black look on these.....pretty sharp looking which is why I picked them up. Notice the uncut hole at the top where the bookmark string would go in...I'm wondering if the string came within the magazine as well. Oh well, what do you think? Anyone else collect oddball sports ephemera?
Have a great weekend!!!
