Seller: grouchyoldman (30,413) 99.9%, Location: Dickinson, Texas, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 233230585797 ABOUT THIS CARD: This card is not 85+ years old, but it is original, rare, inexpensive, and well made. And it tells some great history. It's not a reprint of any previous card - no such card was made in 1931. It was created by a printing company a few years ago in Texas to give out as a printing sample. There was one printing of 300 cards, so it is very scarce. Each card is serial numbered, so each one is unique. (FOR DIMENSIONS, YEAR MADE, and more please see the item details above. If you are using a device or app, you have to click a separate link to view the item details.) If this card was actually made in 1931, it would sell for a minimum of $3,000, maybe a lot more. Tribute cards like this make it possible for a young collector with a limited budget to own a rare card of a famous hero. These cards are bringing more kids back into the card collecting hobby than anything since the first Topps hit the streets over 65 years ago. The world's largest sports card & memorabilia authenticator, PSA, has accepted Monarch Corona cards for grading. This greatly enhances collectible value, particularly with the tiny number printed. Definitely worth having, especially at such a low price.

ABOUT MEDWICK, DEAN, AND THE 1931 HOUSTON BUFFALOES: The 1931 Houston Buffaloes were managed by Joe Schultz, a 38 year-old former big league outfielder. Joe had a long career as a manager, including his stint at the helm of the expansion Seattle Pilots in 1969 at age 76. His season with Seattle is colorfully depicted in Jim Bouton’s book “Ball Four” which came out the following year. Although Dean and Medwick are the most famous members of the ’31 Houston team, there were other notable players involved: Homer Peel – known as the Ty Cobb of the Texas League, Peel still holds the highest career average in Texas League history. Homer could have made his career with a big league team, but seemed to prefer playing in his home state. George Washington Payne – one of the greatest career minior league pitchers ever, he won 348 games during a 26 year career. He was 42 years old in ’31, and won 23 games for Houston that season. Tex Carleton – would break into the starting rotation with St. Louis in ’32 and go on to pitch in 3 World Series. Earl Smith – a 40 year-old outfielder who consistently batted over .300 in the high minors after a career as a starting outfielder from 1916-22 in the major leagues. The team went on to the Dixie World Series against Southern League champion Birmingham, where they lost in 7 games.
