I have two Circus Cards from 1882, Daisy Belmont and Major Littlefluger, both are midgets who traveled with the Sells Bros Circus across the USA giving out trading cards to promote their acts. I've checked the circus history sites and others, but no one knows much about the cards. My grandmother saved them, in very good condition. Are they worth grading? Can I grade them at SGC?

Thanks,
LeftyBob

Leftybob welcome to the boards. As far as I know SGC will probably grade them. Do you have any scans of these? Would love to see them. Give Earl or the guys at a call at SGC or email Earl at ejohnson@sgccard.com

Hi, Thanks for the update.

I have them scanned and the history downloaded. Send me an email and I send you a copy, tesla007@aol.com.

I have not decided if grading is important or not. Most of the circus collectables are not graded. However, the two cards are 127 years old only faded. I'm still investigating the value, but no one has any so they may be very valuable. I thank my grandmother from Joplin, MO for keeping them hid.
