Musing about my five collecting interests: all things Orioles, 50's Baseball, team publications, Japanese cards and even some football and hockey.
You might find some beautiful women, soccer stuff, presidential pins and life advice from time to time. I don't charge extra for any of those.

Ann Dvorak Cigarette cards
My latest Hollywood 'crush' is Ann Dvorak. TMC has been playing some really fun Paul Muni films from the 30s and she regularly turns up in them. I have two cards of her. The one above is a 1934 Golden Grain T84 American Tobacco Card. It shows her best/most unique feature, those eyes. It doesn't show off her dancer's legs. Hubba Hubba
The next one has a better picture. It's a 1936 Godfrey Phillips Stars of the Screen Tobacco Cards. The back has glue damage and is pretty much ruined, but I'll take the front, thank you.
I've tried to pick up some additional cards from a dealer online but his store is acting stupid. Maybe later.
Meanwhile here is a publicity pic and more info about the actress I've seen referred to as Ann, Ana and Anna/
