Circa 1960s. George S. Carrington Company.

About George S. Carrington Company:

The George S. Carrington Company began in business sometime in the 1920s or shortly prior. Their cards are marked with a logo in the shape of a tree containing a letter (usually A, H, C, or E) inside the tree. Some early cards are marked with an “H” inside a circle. They published books and games as well as cards. The address for the company noted on their game boxes is 2740 West Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL.

In 1937, the company was in the headlines when then president, Charles S. Ross, was kidnapped, held for ransom, then killed. Murderer John Seadlund was the subject of an FBI manhunt and finally captured in early 1938 at the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia, CA.

When wartime paper shortages led to the demise of both the George C. Whitney Co of Worcester, MA as well as another Valentine producer, Raphael Tuck also from wartime shortages, Carrington bought out Whitney in 1942, purchasing presses, stock and more.
