Badges? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges!

Well, maybe a few badges couldn't hurt.

Picked up these little fellas when I went on a pre-WWII tobacco card binge last week, wherein I bought over 100 of them for well under $20 shipped.

After two 14-hour days in the classroom, I have neither the time nor the energy to do any research on these cards, but, using deductive reasoning and a dash of inference drawing, I'd venture that these were produced after 1918 in the UK. 

Ninety-year-old cardboard from across the pond for under a quarter a piece?  Hells and yes.  And there are plenty more where these came from.  Stay tuned.

Those are from the Ships Badges set, circa 1925. From what I could see there were 50 in the set. Nice find. If you have any doubles, I'd be interested in one or two just as a type card.

Over 100 for under a blaster?
