This month’s VCoM is another Richthofen card that comes from a 1934 pack of Basma Cigarettes from Germany. The card is about the height of a standard American tobacco card like the T206 cards but wider about half an inch.
The downside to collecting Manfred von Richthofen cards is that most, roughly 90-95%, of the cards are of German origination which makes tracking and organizing a bear of a task. In fact, the only American cards of the Baron that I know of are the 1933-34 National Chicle Skybirds, the 2008 & 2009 SP Legendary Cuts Baseball and the 2011 Goodwin Champions cards. But I will not be dissuaded and continue my tasking hunt for the Red Baron.
