Die Cut

 One of my mini collections are Die Cuts.  My quick research shows Die Cuts were originally called

Scraps and were around as early as the 1800's.



There were quite a few baseball "Scraps" in the late 1890's and early Twentieth Century


While I don't have any original Scraps, here is a reprint card of HOF'er
Jess Haines


My die cuts started with the deckle edge





All shapes and sizes



Lots of Heroes


Jersey Die Cut




This is my 10th in this series


Yes Father I got this on Ebay


Probably technically not a die cut but I like it



I thought i should show at least one bubble card





I actually hung this on my tree one year.

Happy Holidays a little early.
