  • No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original trade card featuring a red and white illustration of a young child seeming about to throw a ball. No date, circa 1880s-1890s. 3" x 4 1/2." Trade card is very clean and intact except for age toning. A Very Good copy. Trade card for A. D. Perry & Company, a farming supply store in Syracuse, New York. Trade cards were antique business cards that first became popular during the late seventeenth century in Paris and Lyon, France and London, England. Trade cards were often given by business owners and proprietors to patrons and customers as a way to promote their businesses. Prior to the use of street addresses, trade cards had maps so clients could locate the associated business. Many of these cards also incorporated elaborate designs, illustrations, and other decorative features. Trade cards became popular in the United States during the nineteenth century in the period after the Civil War. The late nineteenth century also saw the advent of trade card collecting as a hobby. While they are no longer in use, trade cards influenced the formation of trading cards and were the predecessors of modern-day business cards.
