This month’s VCoM comes from the 1958 Leaf Cardo Trading Cards release. This is the second ’58 Leaf Cardo card I picked up. This set was a multi-themed release with cars, planes, pirates, cowboys and Presidents. Each theme was what you might consider a subset, they each had their own checklist and designation letters. I picked up this card plus the Captain Kidd card, which I previously posted in March, for $4 shipped.
The card is a depiction of Chinese pirates off the coast of Hong Kong boarding a ship and stealing valuables. I am not sure if this is a true story about a specific event or just an illustration of what has happened at some time.
This card is a bit distressed, there are multiple creases on the front and back along with stains on the back of the card. The colors are still bold and the text is legible so over all it is quite nice.
