EXHIBIT AND RELATED SPORTS ARCADE CARDS

ByAdam Warshaw

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Beginning with its inaugural issues of 1921 and continuing until 1980 when its last cards were printed, ESCO was the unparalleled card manufacturer and chronicler of pro athletes. ESCO made and sold arcade cards and the machines used to distribute them. And what better subject for these cards than sports? This book is my effort to systematically analyze, catalog, checklist and make sense of the American sports arcade card, especially the ESCO products. I cover baseball, boxing, football, hockey, basketball and the other sports subjects in arcade cards. I even cover cards from entertainment sets that include athletes. I am and have been for over 30 years an enthusiastic collector and cataloger of arcade cards. I have written extensively on the subject in periodicals and I am the writer and editor of America’s Great Boxing Cards.
