8000/9000 Karl Schenker Gravure
Collection courtesy of Werner Mohr


A number of cards have been found with an 8000 or 9000 series number marked under the Ross Verlag logo on the back of the card. The face of the card is a gravure portrait in either brown or green, with the text on the back printed in either brown, red, or tan. Appearing on the back is the name of the photographer (Karl Schenker), the publishing company (W.J. Mörlins), and the distributor (Ross Verlag).

The name of the performer appears on the front of the cards, always written in a signature facsimile, never in block letters.

Cards known to date are reproduced below. Images courtesy Werner Mohr.
