This month’s Vintage Card of the Month is the Colgate Raiders football team from the 1910 T51 Murad College Series. This is my 4th card from the set, and 3rd football card, and is a wonderful action illustration. I prefer the action shots over the portrait illustrations that are used in the set.
It surprises me how well the colors and illustrations have held up for over a century, sure there is a crease in the upper right corner and the back has adhesive stickers, but will a 1991 Topps card look as good in 2091?
If I add other T51 Murad cards I am shooting for a baseball action illustration, basketball and hockey cards.
