Interesting 1939 issue that included 12 blank-backed cards that measured 3 7/8" x 9", produced by the Louis Dow Company.  Each of the blotters included a player image on the left side, accompanied by some biographical details on the player and a monthly college football schedule on the right.  The reverse was intended to be used as an ink blotter.

Presented here is the key to the issue, the card of Jim Thorpe.  In the case of this example, the calender is not a monthly calendar, but the 1939 Syracuse University football schedule.  In VG/EX or EX condition, the piece presents well, the blue-backed ink blotter clean and unused.  An outstanding card, the key to a very unusual football issue.
